Why should my association become a member of ChiroCongress?
Networking: This is the primary value of a ChiroCongress membership. We provide extensive networking opportunities for your association through our annual convention and our communications systems. This includes our invaluable nonpartisan forum our state associations utilize to learn from each other about current trends and challenges in chiropractic, how other states are dealing with these challenges, and how to duplicate those successful strategies in your own state.
Discounts and Non-Dues Revenue: ChiroCongress continues to develop a Resource Center through which your association can obtain exclusive products and services that will increase your own members’ benefits and your non-dues revenue. Our organization represents the largest number of chiropractors through our member associations, which gives us the position to negotiate deals you would not otherwise be able to obtain as a singular association.
