For Members


Aromatherapy Chapter Meetings continue to be held every two months around the province. Members are encouraged to participate in the meetings, by bringing research material and case study information to share with the group. Some parts of the proceedings of these meetings will occasionally appear in the Newsletter, so that all of our members can benefit. Each group should arrange the summary to be submitted to the Chair/Host of the meeting, who will submit the material to the Continuing Education Coordinator.  At the end of each year, all of these summaries will be published in The Proceedings, a valuable and informative publication available for purchase at our Continuing Education Days, and through our online Bookstore (coming soon!).

Chapters may choose to partake in a Research & Experience Meeting ONCE per year – at any time, instead of the standard prescribed topic for the month. The format of these meetings is up to the chapter group.  The chapter must still submit a publishable report/case study of their findings for the Proceedings.

Please submit your reports to the Chapter Coordinator:
