Organizations Every Acupuncturist Should Consider Joining

Acupuncturist national associations or local organizations give acupuncturists access to risk management education, best practices in patient care, as well as peer networks to advance their career.

Being a member of an acupuncturist association, whether at a national level or belonging to a local chapter, provides acupuncturists with access to continuing education, annual conferences, newsletters full of up-to-date industry information, best practice advice, a network of peers to connect with, as well as local networking events to attend. CM&F has protected the personal livelihood of acupuncturists for many years with superior acupuncture malpractice insurance.

To show our appreciation to those professionals who show dedication to their career by participating in membership associations for acupuncturists, we often will extend a discount, pending regulatory approval by state agencies, to members for our comprehensive, affordable acupuncturists malpractice insurance coverage. Below is a list of acupuncturists associations for you to check out as you look to expand your career or knowledge of the profession.
