The Chiropractors' Association of Australia (CAA) is the major national association representing the chiropractic profession. It has branches in all states and territories of Australia.

The CAA advocates to increase access to quality chiropractic care and to provide professional programs for its members to maintain the highest standards of patient care.

With over 2,600 members, the CAA is the largest chiropractic health body in Australia, and coordinates its efforts with its 8 autonomous CAA state & territory organisations.

The CAA has a staff of fifteen who manage the day to day operations of the organisation and provide high level services to members. Staff are responsible for a broad range of organisational requirements including political lobbying, operations management, training and development, events co-ordination, legal advice services, publications, library and information resources and administration.

The CAA national headquarters is located at Penrith in Western Sydney. The National Board of up to ten members conducts the affairs of the day to day management of the Association. The Association has a current membership of approximately 2,600 members.

What We Do

The national body is involved with such matters as education, publications, conventions, international relations and the liaison with federal government authorities. Membership matters, ethics and representation to state government authorities constitute the primary functions of the branches.

The Council of Representatives meets annually and develops, modifies and recommends policy for the Association. The CAA facilitates and promotes communication between members, and provides leadership to the chiropractic community. In addition, the Association actively promotes the profession within Australia to the general public and to other professionals in health related fields.

The CAA also supports the World Federation of Chiropractic in its endeavours to promote chiropractic worldwide.
