Policy Statement: The NYSCA makes every attempt to offer programs as publicized. We nevertheless reserve the right to alter and/or adjust program details, including but not limited to dates, locations, times, instructors, and presentation sources and sequences.

License Renewal: Continuing education credit (CE) is provided by New York Chiropractic College (NYCC). CE requested only in states listed. If CE is needed a state that is not listed, please contact the NYSCA administrative office.

While applications relating to credit hours for license renewal in selected states have been executed for these programs, it remains attendees' responsibility to contact the state board(s) from whom they seek continuing education credits for purposes of ensuring said board(s) approve both venue and content as they relate to any seminar/ course/ lecture/ webinar/ online presentation (event). Neither a speaker's or exhibitor's presence at said event, nor product mention or display, shall in any way constitute NYCC endorsement. NYCC's role is strictly limited to processing, submitting, and archiving program documents on behalf of course sponsors. These courses are valid for CE credits in "pre-approved" states, so long as it falls within the scope of practice as outlined by the corresponding state board.

Convention Speaker Application
We are required to submit applications for continuing education credit no less than 120 days prior to the start of any event. In view of this, our convention committee will only consider materials received by September 30 for the spring convention, or by March 31 for the fall convention. Submissions received after the deadline may be considered for the following convention. In order to review any speaker applications, the convention committee MUST have a complete packet of information (partial packets will not be reviewed).
