Global Diversity As WFC Announces Council 2019-2022. January 28, 2019

January 28, 2019

For immediate release


Toronto, Canada: The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) has announced its Council for the period 2019-2022.

The Council, which serves as the WFC’s board of directors, is comprised of 13 chiropractors who are drawn from the organization’s 7 world regions: Africa, Asia, Eastern Mediterranean, Europe, Latin America, North America and Pacific.

With longstanding members of Council stepping down after years of service to the WFC, the new Council features 5 new faces: Dr Ayla Azad of Canada, Dr Kendrah da Silva of South Africa, Dr Gian Joerger of Switzerland, Dr David Peeace of Canada and Dr Holly Tucker of the United States of America.

The newly-elected Council takes office in March ahead of the joint WFC / ECU Congress in Berlin.

Secretary-General Dr Richard Brown commented, “In this new Council we have a team of extremely talented individuals. They are truly representative of the global chiropractic profession and bring enormous collective leadership experience, vast knowledge of the profession, and skills in an array of areas. The 2019-2022 WFC Council is perfectly placed to implement our new strategic plan and further develop our role as the global voice of the chiropractic profession.”

Members of WFC Council are nominated by their regions and may be elected or appointed. Council serves as the governing body of the WFC between Assemblies of Members, which are held every 2 years. The Executive Committee, comprising the President, two Vice-Presidents and the Secretary-Treasurer, is elected from among members of Council.

WFC President Dr Laurie Tassell said: “I look forward to working with the new Council. This is an exciting time for the profession with many opportunities to play an increasingly important role in healthcare. Our engagement with its Constituent Member national associations, educational institutions, donors and supporters and our status in official relations with the World Health Organization make the WFC a unique international body. Having worked through a detailed governance review over the past two years, we’re more confident than ever of being able to support, empower, promote and advance the profession as a modern, effective, versatile organization.”
