The biggest day of the year for the chiropractic profession in Texas is happening Valentine’s Day 2019! 

Make plans to be with us in Austin as we advocate for the rights for Texas chiropractors and your patients!



TCA Legislative Day is the one day, every other year, that TCA asks ALL Texas chiropractors, spouses, staff members and chiropractic supporters, along with administrators, faculty and students from Parker University and Texas Chiropractic College, to “Show Your Love for Chiropractic!” 

More than 600 participants made the 2017 TCA Legislative Day the largest in the event’s history! It also was no coincidence that TCA enjoyed its most prolific legislative session in decades with four pro-chiropractic bills signed into law – in large part due to the energy and excitement generated by the Texas chiropractic community on TCA Legislative Day! Let's set a new record in 2019! 

Registration is no longer available. If you are not registered and plan to attend, you must call the TCA Office at (512) 477-9292.

Why do we need a day at the Capitol? 

The TCA encourages informed and active participation in government, with the aim to ensure that chiropractic voices are part of political dialogue on issues impacting the profession. Far too often in the development of public policy, the needs and concerns of those that are affected are overshadowed by statistical data, political speeches and high-profile jockeying among powerful special interests. Doctors of chiropractic (DCs) must get involved in the discussions that directly affect you and your patients. Without your voice, others will be speaking for you.

There are hundreds of bills presented in the Texas House and Senate each legislative session, many of which impact you and your practice. This is YOUR chance to ensure your voice is heard!

 

 


 Don't Miss the Texas Chiropractic Legislative Conference
