Grassroots advocacy is key to CalChiro’s legislative success and the future of the chiropractic profession. CalChiro membership dues and donation fund our endeavors.
Organizations such as the California Chiropractic Association (CalChiro) that are successful at influencing policy-makers frequently increase their effectiveness through the mobilization of local community support, commonly known as working at the grassroots.
The Key Doctor Program is a central component of the Governmental Affairs Department. This grassroots program is designed to educate the legislature about the profession and scope of doctors of chiropractic; establish and maintain positive relationships with legislators; and provide information to the Governmental Affairs Department and CalChiro District presidents regarding legislative concerns.
CalChiro staff, The Weideman Group, and our Governmental Affairs Committee worked diligently vetting legislative proposals for 2018. We started by determining our strategic objectives and built our package from that foundation.
In 2018, CalChiro is actively supporting legislation and building strong relationships at the State Capitol.
