a message from Dr. Burt

Dr. Burt

Over the past two years, members of the College’s Alumni Office have enjoyed visiting with Palmer graduates from around the country—and around the world. Based on the ideas that so many of you have shared with us on these visits, we’re now introducing the Palmer College of Chiropractic Alumni Association.

The platform for the new association comes as a result of a study in which we contacted more than a hundred private and public college alumni associations. This research revealed that most of today’s private college alumni associations are administered by the colleges they represent. In this relationship, all operating costs for the respective associations are covered by the colleges, allowing alumni to participate without paying any dues.

Free and automatic membership is something Palmer alumni have already enjoyed for the past two years. But now the Alumni Office is adding two new components to the alumni association—a board of directors and a series of advisory groups.

To become eligible to serve on either the board or on an advisory group, I encourage you to fill out an Alumni Profile form. You can complete this form online by logging onto www.palmer.edu and visiting the “Getting Involved” page of the Alumni section. Or if you’d like to have a profile mailed to you, call (800) 722-2586, Ext. 3. All profiles are due Dec. 1, 2007.

With so much happening at the College, we invite you to meet with Alumni Office staff while we’re on the road. We can tell you all of the latest developments, including the hiring of Dwight Bailey, Ph.D., to head the new Palmer Center for Business Development. He comes to Palmer with a university background and has experience with owning and operating his own business.

You’ll find a list of the events we’re attending on the Calendar page just inside the back cover. Along with visiting various state associations, we’ll be on hand at the Feb. 7-9, 2008, Parker Seminars in Las Vegas. At last year’s event, Palmer’s reception attracted more than 200 alumni and chiropractors from other schools. Then, from Feb. 23-28, we’ll be taking the Continuing Education cruise, which is a great way to earn credits while enjoying the sun and fun of the Caribbean.

Since 2005, the Alumni Office has done a lot of traveling. We’ve done a lot of listening, too. Yet surprisingly, when we’ve asked some of our alumni for their input, they’ve responded quite humbly, “Why do you want my input?” The answer is simple. Palmer College has been and continues to be a place where its graduates can share their hopes, plans, and, of course, insights.
