Academy President Letter

Dear Fellows,

I’m pleased to report the full scheduled hours for the upcoming American College of Chiropractic symposium in Carlsbad, California have been accepted by the Academy as qualifying for re-credentialing. Also, the College of Forensic Sciences hours for 2017 have been accepted as qualifying for re-credentialing hours.

You can follow-up with these organizations at the following sites:


American College of Chiropractic Orthopedists 2018 Annual Convention

   19 Apr to 21 Apr 2018      


    Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach, Carlsbad CA


CFS 2017 Annual Fall Convention

October 5-7, 2017

Chicago Marriott Oak Brook

1401 W 22nd Street | Oak Brook, IL 60523



The Academy has completed the Part II Diplomate examination this past weekend. We are anticipating all on line testing for 2018. We’ll know more on Part I and II dates early next year. This dramatic change in the examination process will reduce the costs involved for candidates. The exact costs for the Part II have not been set, that will be forthcoming early next year as we assess our costs.


The Academy will be attending the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) this month. There will be information provided about NCCA certification that we are pursuing. ICE is the parent of NCCA.
