Welsh of Roswell, Georgia took office as ICA Vice President and Dr. Selina Sigafoose-Jackson from York, Pennsylvania was re-elected as ICA’s Secretary-Treasurer. In his inaugural comments to the Annual Meeting, new ICA President Dr. Curry stated that “this continues to be a critical time for clarity and clear-cut communications for the profession, anchored in ICA’s timeless and proven principles but applying cutting edge strategies and technologies. We are committed to building on the talent and energy of ICA’s leadership corps and membership with innovative programs and benefits, focused on advancing principled chiropractic as the powerful force in health care it must be in order to meet the needs of patients of all ages in communities around the world”.

March 4, 2015, Falls Church, Virginia: International Chiropractors Association (ICA) members from around the world have been contacting the ICA in unprecedented numbers expressing concern and in many instances outright dismay and opposition to a new effort recently taken by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), to establish a College of Chiropractic Pharmacology and Toxicology, and to promote the term "Chiropractic medicine." ICA's leadership has expressed similar concerns as it is now clear that there are forces at work within some organizations, actively promoting the incorporation of drugs into the scope of chiropractic practice. This is in clear contravention of the statement that the organizations that comprise The Chiropractic Summit--including the ACA--adopted at Seattle, Washington on November 7, 2013, which reads:
The 2015 Annual Meeting of the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) has concluded with a number of developments that will have very important implications for the next round of reform discussions. A large and growing segment of the chiropractic profession has been looking for signs of progress in CCE reform efforts and the ICA is hopeful that the decisions taken this week reflect an awareness on the part of CCE decision-makers of the importance of such reform steps.
