Opening Session 

Friday, April 28: 7-8p

In November 2019, stakeholder representatives from chiropractic national and state organizations, colleges, state associations, corporate partners, individual practitioners and more joined together to share ideas focused on what the future of chiropractic looks like in the coming years, with a goal of identifying a specific effort that a diverse group of individuals and organizations could support. It was concluded that the profession needs a strategic plan that will lead the entire profession into a thriving future.

After intensely spirited and collaborative workgroup sessions representing the breadth of the profession, an historic, actionable, measurable roadmap – The Future of Chiropractic Strategic Plan – has been developed and is in the process of being implemented.

Our keynote speakers include some of the forces behind the plan, including:

  • Jay Greenstein: Member, Leadership Committee; Chair, ChiroTech Consortium
  • Donald Reno: Chair, Government Affairs Workgroup
  • Dan Spencer: Member, Government Affairs Workgroup
  • Kristine Dowell and Kristi Hudson: Members, Intra-Profession Communications Workgroup

The goals and objectives of the Plan reflect the voices of nearly 4,000 chiropractic professionals. Each goal, as well as the language included, has been debated, discussed, and ultimately agreed upon by professionals representing the diverse philosophies, practice styles, and careers that make up the chiropractic profession.

As chiropractors across the state of Michigan and the nation strive to become THE most trusted health care providers in their communities – to become true Agents of Change in our healthcare system – the future of the profession is more important than ever before, and the implementation of The Future of Chiropractic Strategic Plan is critical to the success of the profession!

Also, MAC leadership will be on hand to discuss the important topics facing the profession in the Mitten State. MAC President Dr. Robert Markle will discuss the “State of the MAC,” the national Medicare legislation, and other issues important to the profession. This meeting is NOT TO BE MISSED!
