Frequently Asked Questions
Are all state chiropractic organizations eligible to become an affiliate?
The state association must have an organizational mission and vision that is largely compatible with that of ACA in order to be eligible for membership. The state association also must have a desire to work in a collaborative partnership, as noted above, for the greater good of the profession.
Will a state association have to give up any kind of control in order to participate in shared activities?
Not at all. Affiliation enhances advocacy initiatives and provides mutual benefit for all participating organizations. There will be no shared governance requirements between ACA and member organizations.
Is there a fee to join?
There is no fee to join the affiliate program. Representatives or their state affiliates are responsible for travel expenses for in-person meetings and activities, such as the annual ACA HoD meeting during ACA Engage, ACA’s advocacy day and annual conference.

When joining the State Affiliate program, each state association will sign a partnership agreement with ACA. The agreement will include an acknowledgement that each organization’s vision of the future of chiropractic and their current policies, positions and plans for professional development are largely compatible. Further, it will contain a pledge that, to the extent possible, each organization will share information, infrastructure, staff and member support for joint programs and initiatives to advance the chiropractic profession for the benefit of our patients.
