Member Boards

Donna M. Liewer, FCLB Executive Director, 
accepts the 2006 George Arvidson Award 
for Meritorious Service to Chiropractic Regulation

2006 Outstanding Board Award

Each year, the accomplishments of one board set a new standard for chiropractic regulation.   They model for others the excellence that marks the daily responsibilities of protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public.  They say it can be done – and then they do it.

This year’s FCLB award for outstanding chiropractic regulatory board recognizes two boards innovative and proactive efforts.   The regulatory world has expanded to include a better understanding of the informational needs of both patients and licentiates.

These boards have embraced those responsibilities, setting higher standards for communication and patient protection, for billing practices and diagnostic responsibilities.
From streamlined administrative processes to online services,
from emergency licensing to more flexible and creative disciplinary responses, these people have taken the board of tomorrow and brought it into clear focus today.

The foundation for their creativity is their commitment to service.   Without hesitation, they faced the ethical crisis within the profession and didn’t back down.   They identified needs for greater flexibility in licensing and discipline and took steps to bring necessary resources to their licentiates and their board.

For their creativity in finding effective methods of meeting needs within the profession,  for their commitment to developing character, professionalism, and ethics in their board and licensees, and for their willingness to volunteer generously their ideas and talent with the Federation family-

Please join me in extending our appreciation and recognition
