American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA)
AVCA Doctors are part of something BIG!
MEMBERSHIP is doctors, individuals and groups working together within their disciplines to expand and promote the knowledge and acceptance of animal chiropractic to their professions, the public and governments; locally, nationally and internationally, within the Standards, Bylaws and Ethics Statement set forth by the AVCA.
Membership – Staying Current and Connected
The intangibles: Collegiality, Professional Credibility, and Profession Unity
When we listen to members talk about what their membership means to them, they most often refer to the intangible benefits, particularly collegiality of their fellow AVCA members and being a part of a unified profession. Personal and professional relationships and profession unity are built through maintaining association membership and annual conference attendance.
Professional Membership (Voting) $225, Doctor Associate $300, Non-Doctor Associate $100
Members are committed to being a positive and unifying force.
