Key Doctor Program


Key Doctor Program

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. 

The Key Doctor will act as a contact liaison between his or her assigned legislator/s, CalChiro staff and his or her local CalChiro district president.  CalChiro Governmental Affairs Department will provide all Key Doctors a grassroots-training manual that will assist them in effective grassroots lobbying techniques.

The Key Doctor Program Committee Chairperson in conjunction with the Governmental Affairs Committee Chairperson appoints Key Doctors. The goal of the Key Doctor Program is to have at least one doctor of chiropractic assigned to each legislator.
