Advocacy

Welcome to the NCCA-PAC!

NCCA-PAC is the political action committee of the North Carolina Chiropractic Association that conducts fundraising activities and develops relationships with legislators on the state level. The NCCA also advocates for chiropractors and their practices through regular meetings with insurance entities and provider networks. These relationships are paramount to the success of chiropractic in the state. Your support and dedication are crucial to the success of our state legislative effort and essential to the future of the chiropractic profession.

If you are already an NCCA-PAC donor, thank you again for your continued support. You do not have to be a donor to help your profession. See below for other ways to help. If you have any questions about the NCCA-PAC, our current legislative agenda, or have ideas and want to participate, please contact our CEO, Heather Wrenn.

Legislative Efforts in North Carolina

In North Carolina, the General Assembly is made up of 50 senators and 120 representatives who are elected for two-year terms. The General Assembly meets in regular session (or the “long session”) beginning in January of each odd-numbered year, and adjourns to reconvene the following even-numbered year for what is called the “short session”. For a bill to be considered during the short session it must pass one of the chambers during the long session.

The NCCA employs two lobbyists, Angel Sams and Laura Devivo. They, along with the NCCA Executive Director Heather Wrenn, monitor legislation to advance and protect the chiropractic position in the state. The NCCA alerts members in our weekly Member Memos to legislation that we are watching and to any grassroots action that needs to be taken.
