Proposed ACA Rehab Council Article XVIII – Establishment of a College
“In accordance with its objective to promote scientific research directly related to all aspects
of physiologic therapeutics and rehabilitation with particular attention directed towards
chiropractic and multi- disciplinary network approach, the ACA Rehab Council President
may, upon a two-thirds (2/3) majority vote of the members at a regular or special meeting
called for that purpose, appoint a College which will be governed by its own Bylaws which
will not be in conflict with the Rehab Council Bylaws or those rules and regulations set
forth by the ACA, and which will consist of a group of chiropractic doctors with a specific
academic and clinical focus that can be viewed as complementary to the specialty of
rehabilitation. The College shall aid in providing scientific, academic and clinical guidance
and research to the ACA Rehabilitation Council complementary to the field of rehabilitation.”
