The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) held its annual meeting from April 29 to May 3, 2013, in San Francisco. At the annual meeting, which took place on Friday, May 3, two minor changes were made to bylaws that enable board members to hold meetings by electronic meeting systems and to enable the board to communicate with state boards electronically.
Also at the meeting, state delegates elected Dr. Daniel Côté of Oregon as district I director, replacing Dr. Robin Lecy from South Dakota, who did not run for re-election. Dr. Donna Craft of Michigan was re-elected as district II director, a position she has held since 2007. All district directors serve three-year terms.
Three remaining district directors will continue their terms on the NBCE board. They are Dr. Paul Morin (Maine) in district III, Dr. Ronald Tripp Jr. (Oklahoma) in district IV, and Dr. Norman Ouzts, Jr. (South Carolina) in district V.
The board also has four at-large positions: Dr. Salvatore D. LaRusso (Florida) was re-elected and Dr. Lawrence O'Connor (New Jersey) was elected as an at-large director. Drs. LaRusso and O'Connor each will serve two-year terms. Dr. Daniel Saint-Germain (Quebec) and Dr. Steven Conway (Wisconsin), who were elected in 2012, will continue their terms.
The Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards fills two positions on the board. This year, the federation appointed FCLB President Dr. LeRoy Otto (Minnesota) and FCLB Vice President Dr. Farrel Grossman (South Carolina) to serve on the NBCE board.
Once the 11-member board was complete, officers were chosen. Dr. Ouzts Jr. was re-elected president of the board, Dr. Craft was re-elected vice president, Dr, Conway was elected secretary, and Dr. Morin was re-elected treasurer. The four officers will make up the Executive Committee of the NBCE.
