Thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s District meetings in Nashville, Tennessee; Colorado Springs, Colorado; and Fort Walton Beach, Florida. It was a pleasure to meet with all of you. Special thanks to the Tennessee and Colorado Chiropractic Associations as well as Standard Process for their contributions. Also, thanks to Dr. Craig Little of the CCE and the various district representatives of the NBCE.


This year’s FCLB regional meeting focused on many challenges currently facing regulators, including standard of care issues, jurisdictional borders, and the importance of flexibility.

As in past years, the roundtable discussions sparked the greatest collaboration. Some of the hot issues we discussed telehealth, insurance audit oversight, and Independent Medical Examinations.

The FTC/Supreme Court decision continued to be of great interest. Many boards are just beginning find out how this decision will affect board operations. We’ll keep you updated.

Specialty certifications are a big issue for all of our boards. How do boards evaluate the validity of certifications? How do advertising rules apply so that patients aren’t misled about the quality of training involved?

As we discussed at the meeting, I encourage all of our boards to take a close look at their operations and make whatever changes are necessary to keep them effective and efficient. Consider training for new board members as well as yearly self-evaluations.


In FCLB news, the PACE program is growing, adding new services and flexibility for users. If your board currently accepts PACE, please consider asking your staff to add a link to your website. Helping licensees find quality CE can streamline your processes significantly.

Additionally, we now have online access to CE reports for any licensees who’ve taken a PACE course. When it’s time to audit your licensee’s continuing education, chiropractors with PACE credits can simply click to send an email report directly to your board. No more paper tsunamis!


Another service available to your board is the Certified Chiropractic Clinical Assistant (CCCA) program.  As more boards look at patient safety and chiropractic assistants, the need for uniform standards is increasing.  Like all of our programs and services, the CCCA is designed so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.  If you are considering language to regulate chiropractic assistants, please contact us to learn how this program might help your board.

To learn more about this program, please visit the FCLB website and click on “ Chiro Assistants.”

Should you wish further information about this or any of the FCLB meetings, you may always contact our board via e-mail. You can also view the minutes of all our FCLB board meetings online.
