Expansion of The Association for IEMT Practitioners

Overseas Expansion

At the time of writing, we have 420 members of the Association, most of whom are in the UK and The Netherlands. Some of you may already be aware that I have now registered The Association for IEMT Practitioners LLC in the USA and will shortly begin work on the website to go with this.  I will also soon start work on the Romanian, Israeli and Indian Associations.

For the time being, the current Association will remain the nominal "International" body and these other Associations will be run as independent concerns for all intents and purposes.  The reason for this is two-fold - firstly for the purposes of limiting liabilities, any litigation in the USA, for example, would leave the other bodies unaffected.  The other is the issue of language. At the moment there is no facility for non-English speakers and I seek to remedy this as soon as possible.

These other Association bodies will be overseen solely by myself and administrated by individuals appointed from outside the Association. There is simply too much competition and in-fighting between trainer members of the Association and I have no desire to transfer this problem into new territories.

Creation of Professional Guilds

With the continual expansion and the increasing acceptance of IEMT as a legitimate treatment modality, we are seeing an increasing number of qualified professionals trained in IEMT. For example, we now have a number of doctors, police officers, allied health care professionals and so on.

It is with this that I propose to create a number of "Guilds" within the International Association. For example, "The Association for IEMT Practitioners Medical Guild." With the creation of the US Association, the first guild will be a Military Veterans Guild.

The creation of such guilds will allow for a better public image, give greater recognition to those professionals working in specific and specialist areas and will facilitate the creation of additional training programs that are tailored to specific groups.

Each guild will have its own 'Principal' to oversee and promote specific interests and this can be any member of the Association in good standing.

Each Principal will hold office for a period of 24 months at which point the guild members will vote for the next 2 years term.

From a public image and marketing point of view, the creation of guilds will enable us to pair IEMT to an existing accepted concept and thus makes IEMT more accessible to those unfamiliar with the methodology.

For those unfamiliar with the background of Guilds, please see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guild

Please note we won't be using the "three degrees" titles most commonly used in the early guilds as these are more commonly associated with freemasonry and esoteric societies.

This will happen within the next 6-12 months. Possibly sooner, if my health is permitting.

After a day of serious input, i am in the mood for having fun!

I recommend changing ´Overseas expansion´ metaphor to that of ´Global growth´, coming from a ´Brit´ the phrase is fraught was baggage and former colonial cousins from India and America may get unduly worried ;). We may sit in fear if the Queen decides to take away power from you like she did to the East India Company! Neither do you want Boston Tea Parties and Sepoy Mutinies!!

This is a great idea, as IEMT is already becoming globally known and represented. The addition of guilds could add professionalism and create areas of expertise to broaden the applications beyond “eye wigging” and trauma application.
