TAKE ACTION!



Join the Colorado Chiropractic PAC Club!

As CCA members know, the CCPAC is the the Colorado Chiropractic Political Action Committee. It's role is to facility CCA's lobbying efforts to help the association further it's legislative agenda. To fulfill its role, CCPAC must raise funds through donations from chiropractors and others in order to make contributions to office holders, political committees, legislative entities and candidates for office.

Your contributions to CC-PAC will:

  • Strengthen your practice and our profession by promoting positive chiropractic legislation
  • Educate legislators on chiropractic issues
  • Help elect pro-chiropractic leaders to the Colorado State Assembly
  • Support the profession's visibility at the State Capitol
  • Determine the future of chiropractic in this State

Because this is an election year, the CCA has been very active in attending fundraisers and supporting legislators, candidates and political committees. The CCA is fortunate to have an entire lobbying team, whom are very well respected and skilled in deciphering the impact seemingly unrelated legislation would have on the profession and is, therefore, able to identify key individuals for the PAC to support!
