RESOLUTION #2-08

Submitted for Consideration by FCLB Board of Directors 

Restatement of the FCLB Articles of Incorporation

Whereas, The Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards (FCLB) has been incorporated in Wyoming as a nonprofit organization since 1966; and

Whereas, The FCLB received a Federal IRS determination letter awarding 501(c)(6) status in 1968; and

Whereas, Many other federations of professional regulatory boards operate under 501(c)(3) status; and

Whereas, 501(c)(3) status designation would more accurately reflect the membership and operations of the organization; and

Whereas, The FCLB Board of Directors proposes a Restatement of the FCLB Articles of Incorporation to coincide with its mission and operations and to facilitate its 501(c)(3) application; now, therefore, be it


Resolved, That the FCLB adopt the Restatement of the FCLB Articles of Incorporation as attached.

RESOLUTION #3-08

 Submitted for Consideration by FCLB Board of Directors

To adopt a 5% annual automatic dues increase
and to bundle one annual conference registration fee into the dues package effective January 1, 2009

Whereas, The current Federation Bylaws specify that annual dues for member boards shall be determined by the Board of Directors and approved by majority vote of the member chiropractic boards; and

Whereas, At the 2007 annual business meeting, the Federation delegates voted to increase the dues structure by 20% effective January 1, 2008, and to establish an ad hoc committee to review the dues structure; and

Whereas, The dues structures for other professions’ federations of regulatory boards have been carefully studied; and

Whereas, Dues for all such federations represent a vital income consideration; and

Whereas, A dues structure based strictly on a per licensee assessment (rather than the current “category range” model) would pose undue hardship for some FCLB member boards; and

Whereas, The current category range dues structure is as follows:

# of Licenses Amount Due

      01 - 49 $ 390
      50 - 199 $ 600
    200 - 499 $ 690
    500 - 999 $ 750
  1000 - 1499 $ 870
  1500 - 1999 $1,020
  2000 - 3999 $1,140
  4000+ $1,260

Whereas, The FCLB delegates requested the a regular “cost of living” increase be built into any final proposal, to aid in the budget projection process of the member boards; and 

Whereas, Several member boards have requested consideration of a bundled package to include one prepaid annual conference registration fee; and

Whereas, Such annual conference prepaid registration fee would be on a “use it or lose it” basis, thereby encouraging member boards to take advantage of the benefit and to participate in the Federation’s educational conference and annual business meeting; and

Whereas, The current conference registration fee is $395 (subject to modification by the FCLB board of directors as necessary to meet expenses); now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Federation increase membership dues annually by 5% per category, based on the current category range model; and

Resolved, That each board’s FCLB membership dues be increased to include one prepaid annual conference fee to be applied to the registration of its designated representative; and

Resolved, That this modification of the FCLB dues structure be implemented effective with the January 2009 dues assessment.

Acceptance of continuing education of the pillars of chiropractic -

Whereas, The Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards understands the need of appropriate chiropractic continuing education with the establishment of the Providers of Approved Continuing Education (PACE) program; and


Whereas, Criterion 16 of the PACE program states that “...continuing education program addresses topics pertinent to contemporary chiropractic art, science, philosophy or practice,” now, therefore, be it


Resolved, That the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards highly recommends that every licensing jurisdiction approve continuing chiropractic education relative to science, art, philosophy and history without prejudice; and


Resolved, That the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards highly recommends that every CCE approved chiropractic college provide continuing chiropractic education relative to science, art, philosophy and history without prejudice.
