The International Association for Voice Movement Therapy is run by the members, for the members and for the advancement of the work of Voice Movement Therapy. The association provides a forum in which we can all participate and offer support to each other in our work.
The membership year runs for one full year from September 15th.
Please note that dues must be paid by September 1st, 2015 if you are attending this year's conference in Vermont. Otherwise, please ensure your dues are paid by the usual September 15th deadline, so we can register you as a member for 2015-2016.
