It’s hard to believe 2016 is here, and the Texas Chiropractic Association is already hard at work to serve you, our members and the entire Texas chiropractic community.

TCA Tour of Texas

TCA is officially kicking off its TCA Tour of Texas, our grassroots initiative to connect with doctors of chiropractic across the state, on Tuesday, Jan. 5, in San Antonio. Renowned chiropractic coach Charles Ward, DC, will offer The Keys to Becoming Fulling Engaged in Your Practice. In addition, TCA will provide important legislative and legal updates and highlight upcoming activities. San Antonio-area docs, don’t miss this opportunity to find out what’s happening at the state level and network with your peers. It should be fun!

The TCA Tour of Texas will roll into Dallas on Monday, Jan. 11, and Fort Worth on Tuesday, Jan. 12, with media expert, best-selling author and Parker University President Emeritus Fab Mancini, DC, sharing The Three Powerful Ways to Grow Your Practice. A week later, the TCA Tour of Texas hits Austin on Tuesday, Jan. 19, with Dr. Ward the featured speaker.

If you practice or live in these areas, register online and indicate the city. Please bring your spouse, significant other or a guest, particularly another DC. If you are from another part of the state, look for announcements on upcoming TCA Tour of Texas stops.
