New Brand Positions ACA Chiropractors for Higher Standards, Future Opportunities

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) this week launched a new brand designed to make the association stronger and more relevant to its members and to better position it to seek and respond to opportunities in the modern health care system. More than just a new logo, the brand boldly defines what it means to be an ACA chiropractor.

“We're making a historic transformation on the inside by transitioning our governance, holding ourselves to higher professional standards, improving our relationships with other health care providers and committing to evidence-based care,” said ACA President David Herd, DC. “We've also improved our mission, vision, and values to inspire and empower a new legion of members to join our ranks.”

In addition, ACA is making a revolutionary transformation on the outside with a new look that is fresh, relevant and inspiring—and reflective of the association’s desire for collaboration with the wider health care world.

The new brand was the product of an extensive process of review, reflection and self-examination for ACA as an organization that started in 2015 with a new strategic plan. ACA then hired a respected consultant to reach out to members, non-members, other health care providers and a variety of stakeholders to ask what ACA means to them. The project took nearly six months and was a deep dive into the profession. After more than 30 hours of interviews, hundreds of survey responses and volumes of research, recommendations were presented to ACA’s Board of Governors last year, then ACA’s House of Delegates in March 2017.

Among key findings of the brand study:
