a message from Dr. Burt

Your future. Your alumni association.

Dr. Burt

When you’re running a business, you know that you have to evolve or you won’t be able to meet the needs of the people you serve. The same can be said for a college alumni association.

That’s why I’m proud to introduce the new Palmer College of Chiropractic Alumni Association, or PCCAA. It was formed out of an understanding that the best way we can help our alumni is to give them the types of programs and services they need—now and in the future. To learn what those needs are, we’ve begun holding panel discussions with our alumni at state and national chiropractic events.

We’ve also expanded the way in which we communicate with our alumni. The next time you’re on the Web, visit Facebook and check out the “Palmer College of Chiropractic Alumni” group page. At http://groups.to/palmer_alumni/ you can catch up with fellow classmates and find Alumni Office travel dates. There’s also a group page for Insights on Facebook.

Other social networking vehicles we’re using include Twitter and MySpace. In the future, we plan on posting a variety of videos on YouTube while offering podcasts on www.palmer.edu that feature interviews with alumni like you.

On the road, we’ve always enjoyed your questions about the latest events and advancements at the College. But what we really want to hear is what’s going on in your career and how we can help make it more successful.

Recently an alumnus told me, “It’s nice to see that Palmer College cares more about their alumni than it does about itself.” Alumni also have told us they want an alumni association that’s service-oriented. We’re responding by developing cost-saving programs such as co-ops, credit cards and group memberships that offer lower costs on supplies.

The new alumni association also is providing all of its programs and services for free. That’s because the PCCAA is an important part of Palmer College, with the Alumni Office ensuring that the association’s programs are geared toward supporting our alumni in the business of chiropractic, allowing you to not have to pay any dues. For more information on the structure of the PCCAA, turn to page 7.

As the Alumni Office looks to the future, we see an alumni association that continually responds to and enhances the needs of our alumni. You can let us know the types of programs and services you need by calling (800) 722-2586, Ext. 3, or e-mailing us at alumni@palmer.edu. After all, the best way we can ensure the PCCAA is continually evolving is by having alumni like you give us your insights.
