But as our world moves faster and faster, it is becoming more important for the chiropractic profession to not only unite, but to stay well informed. To serve both of these goals, our two national chiropractic associations will be presenting their plans, goals, and accomplishments in the new "Joint Legislative Column."
Kurt Hegetswieler, D.C., chairman for ACA Commission on Legislation and delegate for Los Angeles County and Ronald M. Hendrickson, ICA executive vice president, will be the primary authors (along with occasional guest columnists) on an alternating basis. Between the two authors, the profession will not only have the opportunity to review our national issues from the two vantage points, but also have a chance to get involved in the issues each organization is wrestling with.
The hope is that ICA members will feel free to work with the ACA on issues that are important to them and vice versa. Of course, most of the time the ICA and the ACA will be working together on the more critical challenges.
The coming together of the two national associations on legislative issues is critical at this stage of our development. Every chiropractor and student in the country should make it their responsibility to become involved in the issues that will be presented by these two authors.
