Committees & Task Forces

This year we had record high involvement from CalChiro volunteers on our committees and task forces. If you did not have the opportunity to participate this year, watch for the Call for Volunteers coming out in early Summer 2018 for the next round of volunteerism!

Call for Volunteers

Thank you for your continued support of the California Chiropractic Association (CalChiro). We have an exciting year ahead of us full of many changes. In order to successfully implement these improvements, CalChiro needs YOU!

Are you looking for ways to expand your professional network and contribute to CalChiro? We need volunteers who will help create a stronger organization and chiropractic community statewide.
