Thanks to YOU CSW Celebrates Three Years of Success!

Happy Anniversary Friends and Colleagues,

Its time to celebrate! Its time to acknowledge all of our members and future members for staying the course and believing! Its hard to believe it has been 3 years since the CSW launched, much to the surprise of a many. There are those who greatly underestimated the will, talent and commitment of our team and our members. What a costly mistake.

During this time of acknowledgment and reflection, I would like to remind you of why the CSW was launched.

The birth of the CSW is not unlike how many of us were called to Chiropractic. Do you remember when you heard the simple but elegant Chiropractic story? Many have stated it changed them forever. For those whose purpose and path had just been revealed, it was a game changer. Like so many have stated, they didn't choose Chiropractic but Chiropractic choose them!

The birth of the CSW was a similar experience. When the idea was floated that a new path and direction for the state was needed, I knew that was accurate. We had lost our way. We were not focusing on how to empower Chiropractors to be successful. Too many barriers were being erected that impeded our ability to provide great service. More importantly, our patients needs and rights were not being protected. Someone had to step up and say, enough is enough! We were wasting precious resources on things that mattered to few and were wildly unpopular and unsuccessful for the many. The founders of the CSW believed Chiropractors and Chiropractic patients deserved better!

When a cause is great enough and the determination is unwavering, the outcome is inevitable. Therefore as CSW purpose was revealed it called all those committed to a new reality.

Being in the minority and choosing the path less traveled is never easy. As Chiropractors we know this world all to well. By nature we are born contrarians. If we wanted an easy path, we would have chosen a different profession. This mindset prepared us well for the battles ahead.

unnamed (1)Although there have been many, this email is not to chronicle the victories we have achieved or all those yet to be had. The purpose is to acknowledge all of you who believed in us from the beginning and those of you who have joined us along the way. The list is long and extends way beyond the borders of our State. We could not have done this without everyone's support. There isn't a day that goes by when we don't hear from our members and national leaders to keep fighting for our beliefs. You inspire us to never give up or give in!

As our numbers continue to grow, I want you to know that we will never loose sight of who we are and most importantly who we serve... You and the citizens of WI.

It is a privilege to lead and serve. We take this responsibility seriously and will work relentlessly to earn your respect and confidence.

A leader's job is to acknowledge the victories with its team, to stop and celebrate and give thanks for the accomplishments and to use it as fuel for the battles that lay ahead. Today is that day. Congratulations are in order, you deserve it.

Thank you for all you do and for being apart of the greatest profession in the world.

On Wisconsin!!
