Members meeting hosted on 21st February 2011
Greater Manchester and South Cheshire hosted their local group meeting on 21st February 201 at Precious Health Studios in Hale Village. The meeting provided an opportunity for members to get together. Celia Butt Nutrionist gave an excellent presentation on Protein and health.
Following some recent research Elizabeth discovered that one of the reasons that members were finding it difficult to attend local group meetings was due to their locality in relation to the meetings. Elizabeth has asked for anyone interested to come forward as local co-ordinator in their particular area to take over the organising of the local groups to enable her to concentrate on her Regional role for the C Th A.
Susan Leigh Hypnotherapist has offered to undertake the role for the Altrincham Group, but this will be a gradual process over the next 6 months when Elizabeth will continue to mentor her and provide support. Anyone interested in taking the role of local co-ordinator in their own area within the North West and North Wales should contact Elizabeth ASAP for more information.
During the meeting one of the comments were; that meetings were not promoted. This is not correct as e mails are sent to promote the meetings to all members plus information is posted on the web site on the forum section. However, Elizabeth acknowledged that she wanted to raise the profile of group meetings on a face book page and look to other social network sites to promote the work that we do and support each other, host talks, stalls and workshops. The issue of membership was raised and Elizabeth confirmed that she was waiting on attending a meeting with Kush to formulate an action plan to drive the memberships with students. Finally, it was discussed that there is a need for workshops and training, which Elizabeth is hoping to address through the approval of the Complementary Therapy Association and www.colorpurpletherapies.com
The next meeting will be held at Altrincham Leisure Centre Oakfield Road Altrincham on Saturday 14th May at 1 -3pm There will be stalls hosting a range of therapies and talks from therapists and members.
