"The American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) and the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) are excited to announce that on Tuesday, May 1, 2012, Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia signed into law SB 414. This legislation creates a music therapy license in Georgia through the Secretary of State. Many thanks to the members of the Georgia Task Force (Rachel Coon-Arnott, Jamie George, Kirby Smith, Chesley Mercado, Pat Coates, and Ellen Ritchey) and to all the music therapists in Georgia for their work, dedication, and advocacy for this legislation."
Rachel Coon-Arnott was honored with the Advocacy Award by the Southeastern Region of AMTA (SER-AMTA) for the effort, passion, and collaborative spirit she brought to this endeavor.
