"I've never seen a more concentrated, dedicated, and unified effort of cooperation to obtain a monumental goal," said TCC President S.M.Elliott, D.C.
An offshoot of the fund-raising has been the emergence of the TCC Development Corps, an idea developed by board member Charles Albracht, D.C., and refined by Ken White, D.C., and Billie Duncan, TCC's chief development officer. Dr. Albracht explained: "After being on the board for a short time, I found that there wasn't a consistent base of giving to TCC. There are so many people out there who have reaped the benefits of being a chiropractor and having graduated from TCC but have never been approached to give large amounts of money..."
The Development Corps currently has 20 members. A full member contributes $5,000 a year; an associate member $2,500.
