CHIEF Pledge Drive is Underway

WCA's goals are to move chiropractic forward and expand the tools available to you. We are focused on maintaining our momentum this legislative season, fresh off the late April hearing of our Clinical Tools package (AB 260) in the Assembly Committee on Health. Provisions of AB 260 include:

  • Allowing student athletes and their parents the right to choose a chiropractor for their athletic and extracurricular pre participation examinations (PPEs).
  • Allowing chiropractors who obtain additional training to perform chiropractic acupuncture and/or dry needling under their chiropractic licenses.
  • Clarifying Wisconsin law to ensure that chiropractors can continue to perform federal DOT driver physicals.
  • Allowing chiropractors to delegate appropriate services to other licensed health care providers (i.e., nurses, X-ray technicians, massage therapists, etc.)

The provisions of AB 260 have broad support within WCA membership as indicated by the results of a survey conducted in March 2017. A recap of the April Hearing was featured in the spring edition ofThe Wisconsin Chiropractor. View the issue >>

As we work to advance legislation that will benefit all chiropractors in Wisconsin, we are kicking off our 2017 CHIEF pledge drive. Through CHIEF, the Chiropractic Health Information & Education Fund, WCA members can support elected officials and candidates who are true advocates for the chiropractic profession in Wisconsin. Every dollar you pledge goes to your personal CHIEF account, which you control. While the WCA will recommend specific candidates to support, no money leaves your account without your express consent.

You should have received information in the mail related to the CHIEF pledge drive, and we are asking that you please return the CHIEF pledge form to the WCA as soon as possible. Read the CHIEF letter>>

There are many reasons to consider contributing to CHIEF. The legislature constantly reviews and reforms the state’s rules and regulations, so having loyal backers of chiropractic at the Capitol is critical to the WCA’s ongoing efforts to protect your right to practice in Wisconsin. Additionally, contributing to CHIEF allows for personal recognition while also showing unity within the Wisconsin chiropractic community.

Through CHIEF, we support candidates, regardless of party affiliation, who demonstrate both an understanding of the chiropractic profession and an appreciation for the work you do for your patients.

Thank you for your support!
