ICA Annual Meetings Tackle Key Challenges to the Profession

The International Chiropractors Association convenes its 89th Annual Meeting and Strategic Planning session in Atlanta, GA with a proactive agenda targeting key challenges and action steps for advancing principled chiropractic.   Representatives from different regions in multiple countries conducted a series of meetings together on the Life University campus over the end of April through the first days of May to address the profession’s vital challenges and coordinate and carry forward many of ICA’s key initiatives.  
 
The ICA Annual Meetings also mark the transition of new officers stepping into service.  “It has been a privilege and an honor to serve as ICA’s President,” noted Dr. Michael S. McLean who is concluding his term of office, “I look forward to supporting our new officers with ICA’s important work in building an ever-stronger community for chiropractic principles and practice.”  ICA’s incoming president, Dr. George B. Curry, noted 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 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”.

ICA Responds to Member Questions on New ACA "College of Chiropractic Pharmacology" Proposal

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."
