A Message From The Alliance of New Mexico Chiropractors President
As the ANMC we have one goal: to serve the chiropractors of New Mexico with a strong united voice.I know the majority of chiropractors have more in common with each other than what divides us. We will use this common ground to build a strong organization. We are dedicated to having an open board, with board meetings that are open to the membership to attend and the by laws and minutes are posted for all members to see on our website.
The ANMC PAC will raise money to support chiropractic voluntarily. We will never take a portion of your dues and put it into a PAC. If you support the goals of the PAC, donate. If you don’t, we’re not going to take your donation from the organization.
The Alliance of New Mexico Chiropractors is here to serve you whether you consider yourself “straight or mixer”. We don’t care what your practice style is. I know that everyone of you has something to contribute that will help us all better this great profession.
The ANMC will promote chiropractic by preserving and protecting the profession’s core principles. Many, many chiropractors spent years in jail for practicing medicine without a license. They fought this travesty and won based on the fact that chiropractic is a separate and distinct profession, removed from medicine, that utilizes the body’s inborn intelligence to heal on its own without the use of drugs and surgery. Our legislative focus will be for what the majority of our members feel is important for the profession in New Mexico, not what a very small minority feels is best for their individual practices.
No matter how you practice, whatever ancillary procedures you use or don't use, what makes us truly unique from any other profession is we are the only ones that locate, analyze, and correct subluxation. The ANMC will continue to fight to preserve this basic distinction. We will not, in any way promote the dilution and eventual demise of chiropractic through scope expansion that would include pharmaceuticals or surgery.
If you are ready to stand up, be heard and respected by an organization with your concerns in mind, then we are here for you. Please join today. Together we can become the strongest voice for chiropractic in New Mexico.
Dr. Phil Uphold, President
