The PCCAA is an important part of Palmer College, with the
Alumni Office having oversight responsibilities to ensure
that the association’s programs give alumni the tools to be
successful. This relationship allows for graduates to receive
a variety of benefits without having to pay any dues.
The PCCAA’s guiding principles
“If you graduated from Palmer, regardless of whether
you were in the D.C. or C.T. program, or one of its master
programs, the PCCAA was created to serve you and all
alumni from Palmer’s three campuses,” said Dr. Burt.
Inclusiveness is just one of the three “guiding principles” that
were used to create the PCCAA, noted Dr. Burt. The second
principle states that all programs and services developed
for the PCCAA will be “service-oriented.” Whether you’re
a chiropractor, a chiropractic technologist, a researcher, an
educator or working in any other type of chiropractic career,
the PCCAA will be there to help you succeed.
The third guiding principle is a goal to ensure that the
PCCAA’s structure is mutually beneficial to alumni and
Palmer College. For example, one program that has been
part of Palmer since the mid 1990s, provides materials for
doctors to participate in career fairs and talks, or simply
display information in their office for prospective students.
Programs that serve you
The Alumni Office and the Alumni Advisory Council—a
diverse group of Palmer alumni—have developed and are
continuing to develop service-oriented and mutuallybeneficial
programs for both alumni and Palmer College.

programs such as co-ops, credit cards or discounts with
In the coming months, the Alumni Office will be providing
updates on the latest developments of the new alumni
association. To help the Alumni Office staff to continue to
help the PCCAA evolve, they would like to hear from you
and other alumni.
Help us help you
“The only way the PCCAA can continue to grow and meet
the needs of alumni now and in the future is for them to
keep us current about the types of programs and services
they’re looking for today and tomorrow,” said Dr. Burt.
