2024 Membership

Membership & Dues

The ACS has a sustained, respected presence in the state of Alaska, enabling us to fight for the interests of our doctors and our profession. The ACS is the only chiropractic association in the state and endeavors to consistently provide high quality information and education opportunities to our members.  

Membership with the Alaska Chiropractic Society is on an annual basis from January 1 through December 31 of the year purchased.  I may pay in full or on an installment plan of monthly, quarterly or half yearly.  Installment plans are available for annual membership fees – monthly, quarterly, and semi-annually and automatically billed to your credit card.  Installments will be prorated to reflect the time member joins.

Member agrees to notify ACS in writing of any changes in billing account information or termination of this credit card authorization/ach debit authorization 15 days prior to the next due date of the charges and supply ACS with updated credit card or ACH information. Changes must be made in writing, and member will not dispute merchant recurring billing with their credit card, so long as the amount corresponds to the terms indicated in the contract. Member understands they are committed to and responsible for an annual contract amount payable in full or installments from January 1 to December 31 each year.  Membership allows member proprietary access to information only for members and other negotiated membership discounts and benefits that are not accessible to non-members. Therefore, cancellation of membership is not allowed.

By submitting membership application, cancellations must be made in writing, and member will not dispute merchant recurring billing with member credit card, so long as the amount corresponds to the terms indicated in the contract application. Member is aware of the contract and agrees to the terms.

As a Practice Manager, I can’t imagine not being a member of Alaska Chiropractic Society.

We have access to fee schedule, alerts to what changes insurance companies are making, and information on what is happening at the State and National level. I would think if we weren’t members we would feel we were in a bubble where we had no idea what was happening. I can do my job better because of our membership! Becoming a member of the Alaska Chiropractic Society is one of the best investments Kanady Chiropractic Center has made. The continuing education opportunities and  the ability to connect with my peers are invaluable.
