A Professional Commitment - A Great Value

When you support the MAC, you are supporting your profession. MAC membership dues, programs, and vendor partners fund services that benefit the chiropractic profession, including legal and legislative advocacy, and public education. Here are some of the reasons YOU should be a MAC member and make a professional commitment to the association that represents YOUR best interests!

The Value of MAC Membership: There is Strength in Numbers

By Jeromy Myers, DC

Your right to practice is not guaranteed.
Insurance companies, the state legislature, and the courts regularly make decisions affecting YOUR practice and you need a strong and reliable professional association fighting for YOUR interests! The MAC is here to help you protect your license and ensure the value of your practice, now and into the future.

You must be involved and engaged in order to appreciate and reap the full benefits offered by the MAC. The more involved you are, the better we can understand your needs, and the more effective we will be for chiropractic. In other words, and this is true of many things we encounter in life, “The benefit you earn is directly proportional to the effort you put forth.”

You made a tremendous personal investment when you decided to become a chiropractor. You know that it takes hard work and dedication to achieve success. Your hard work and dedication is matched by your state association, which strives to provide the tools for each and every doctor in Michigan to not just survive, but thrive!

The revenue collected from your dues provides a vital source of support to the MAC’s legislative, legal, insurance, and public relations agendas. If you want the MAC to be able to advocate on your behalf, fight discrimination at the court and administrative agency level, and to be able to get the word out to the public about the healing power of chiropractic, your membership in the MAC is critical.
