Following Assembly approval of a motion at the AMTA Assembly of Delegates meeting on 11/30/2020, a short-term work group is being formed to focus on clarifying and identifying gaps in our current policies regarding harassment, sexual harassment, assault, and harm within AMTA. The following motion was approved:

Motion: We move to create an Assembly short-term work group as detailed in the rationale to clarify and identify gaps in our current policies and procedures regarding harassment, sexual harassment, and assault within our association and recommend procedures to ensure implementation of consequences with an update at the Mid-Year Board meeting.
