Adjusting & Biomechanics – Cancelled

This workshop that was scheduled for Saturday, January 22nd in New Jersey has been cancelled. 

Settleback Sessions – from NUCCA’s Collegiality Committee

Our Settleback Sessions are designed to take the conversations that would normally happen in the hallways and hotel restaurants/bars at NUCCA conferences and make them digital. Our hope is to discuss all things Philosophy, Art, Science, and Business through a variety of speakers! Our desire is that you would leave each call inspired and encouraged both personally and professionally.

THE NEXT SESSION: January 2022
Registration will open in December.
FREE for all NUCCA members!

Ambassador Mentorship Program

The Ambassador Mentorship Program focuses specifically on our NUCCA students and young professionals. The event is led by our very own NUCCA Ambassadors where young professionals and students will have the opportunity for mentorship, seek advice and learn more about the industry, the organization and so much more! These programs are philosophical in nature rather than technical. Asking the why versus the how.  Our students and young professionals are our future and this is a platform for you to be heard, and come with burning questions and curious interest.

Wednesday, December 15 @ 6:00pm PST / 8:00pm CST
Registration is OPEN! Click here to register.
FREE for all NUCCA members!

These programs are philosophical in nature rather than technical and focus on the why versus the how.  You are our future and this is a platform for you to be heard. Be sure to register ASAP and come with burning questions and curious interests.

NUCCA Regional Workshops

If you are interested in holding a NUCCA Regional Workshop near you, please click the button below to fill out the online request form. If you have any questions, please reach out to the NUCCA Office at 952-564-3056 or email

Please note: Workshops should take place during the summer or winter months to not interfere with conference attendance. (Summer: June, July, August / Winter: December, January, February)

In consultation with the Education Committee, Dr. Glen Cripe, Dr. Tym Flory, and Dr. Jeff Scholten met regularly in 2018 to conceptualize an enhancement to the methods by which NUCCA doctors are trained.

Regular conference attendance is still crucial, however, the development of kinesthetic, clinical, and research excellence requires the availability of more frequent mentorship opportunities. To this end, we will begin to test the desire of our membership for NUCCA Approved Regional Workshops over the next few years. The first beta version of these workshops occurred in February 2019 in Newport Beach, facilitated by Dr. Glen Cripe. More workshops will be offered regionally in the Winter of 2020. Tentative plans exist for Atlanta, Seattle, LA, Orange County and San Francisco.

If you are a NUCCA Credentialed Instructor, a Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures (NUCCA), or have special post graduate expertise and have an interest in understanding more about how you can get involved and provide NUCCA Approved Regional Workshops, please contact Dr. Jeff Scholten, Dr. Tym Flory or NUCCA.
