January 28, 2021 (Falls Church, VA) At the conclusion of its January 16th meeting, the ICA Board of Directors voted to affirm Beth Clay, the Director of Government Relations and Acting Executive Director as the new Executive Director of the organization.

Dr. Stephen Welsh, ICA’s Interim Chairman of the Board stated, “Ms. Clay has served as the Acting Executive Director for 18 months.  She led a top-down review of ICA’s internal resources and management, has facilitated major improvements internally and externally for the ICA that have long been on the drawing board. She brings to the ICA a wealth of knowledge and experience in government, in integrative, complementary, and alternative health policy, and in the international and non-profit arenas. The Board and I look forward to working with her for many years to come.

Upon her appointment, Ms. Clay provided, “ICA’s founder, Dr. B.J. Palmer, stated “you never know how far reaching something you think, say or do today will affect the lives of millions tomorrow.”  His words ring true today.

It was an ICA Representative Assembly member who provided my chiropractic care as a young child.  With each interaction he fostered an understanding of the role of chiropractic and the innate in the healing process. That mentoring helped guide my life and career choices including living internationally, working on complementary and alternative health activities at the National Institutes of Health, the United States Congress and in the private sector. 

I am excited to be a part of ICA as it enters its 95th year.  Our six councils have the best post-graduate training programs in the industry.  Our Student ICA members are the bright and passionate future of the ICA and chiropractic. The ICA Board are among the professions’ most steadfast protectors and promoters of chiropractic and of the future of the ICA.”
