Earn CE Hours, Save Big on TCA’s New Elite, Premium Memberships

The Texas Chiropractic Association is committed to providing our members with value. With that in mind, TCA has added two new membership types in 2016 that will provide greater access to continuing education opportunities and, as a reward for your being a member, save you money.

The Elite Membership is the highest level of TCA membership. As an Elite Member, you’ll receive unlimited access to all TCA-hosted conferences and one-day CE seminars. Tell us the events you plan to attend and TCA will sign you up. Your upgraded $1,100 Elite Membership includes your registration fees (a savings of more than 30%); the more events you attend, the bigger the savings! Elite Members also receive invitations to VIP events. A portion of your dues also will go to TCA’s Chiropractic Development Initiative (CDI), which protects the chiropractic profession in Texas.

The Premium Membership is a terrific option for doctors who want a convenient and inexpensive way to earn continuing education hours. For only $800, your Premium membership includes a maximum of 18 CE hours (either one full conference registration or a choice of several one-day seminars). Select from 10 TCE-hosted events across the state in 2016 on topics ranging from concussion and Medicare to HIPAA and leg length inequality.

You need 16 continuing education hours and 4 TBCE required hours. Your next premier opportunity will be at the TCA Mid-winter Conference in Lubbock. Study with world-class instructors, business coaches, management experts, and experienced doctors. Bring your staff and learn front desk business skills to make your practice successful. We encourage you to Register Now for TCA’s Annual Mid-Winter Conference.

When a political group states that it will pursue legislative, regulatory, and legal action against your professionwill you just wait or will you join with others to work against their plans? When such a group makes it a policy of frightening people about the consequences of a non-physician in the diagnosis, treatment, education, direction and medical procedures, can you afford to just sit and watch? Join together and counter organized medicine.
Not many novels begin with a chiropractic story, but the book  Forget Me Not, by Jacqueline Falconer features a strong chiropractic connection from its earliest chapters. Read a review of the book.
