WFC Congresses

WFC's Biennial Congresses


What is the WFC Congress?
The WFC Biennial Congress is the only international forum for national chiropractic association leaders and executives worldwide to share best practice experience, develop networks and learn about new areas of innovation from other national associations as they face the challenge of remaining relevant to practicing chiropractors in their regions.

In addition to the Congress scientific programme, additional activities include the WFC World Assembly, pre-Congress seminars, regional federation meetings and a program of social activities.

As part of its outreach to chiropractic organizations worldwide, the WFC believes that it is important for its Congress to be held in a different region of the world on each occasion. The rotation of the Congress to different regions has proved beneficial to WFC in strengthening and maintaining awareness or and participation in our work by our national association members and corporate partner organizations.

Congress host
The WFC Biennial Congress is organized by WFC in conjunction with the host national association and, often, the regional federation. To guarantee the success of the Congress, it is important that the local host is an active member within the WFC and the global chiropractic community and is familiar with the functioning and activities of the WFC. Previous engagement and active participation within the WFC and/or the regional  chiropractic federation lends importance to your commitment in hosting the WFC Congress.
