"CANY is the membership designation for Chiropractic Assistants of New York, a non-voting membership in the New York Chiropractic Council created to include those who are not Doctors of Chiropractic but who provide a crucial role in the success of chiropractic offices across New York State. 

As a part of the growing chiropractic community in New York State, we know that you’re well aware that the New York Chiropractic Council is the organization that most significantly impacts the growth and preservation of the chiropractic way of life for everyone.  CANY serves to support the mission of the New York Chiropractic Council by serving and supporting your office staff.  When your staff becomes active CANY members, they become plugged in to a supportive network of successful chiropractic practices serving our communities. 

There are a multitude of educational opportunities and benefits that come with the CANY membership.  CA’s can take an active interest in growing and learning by engaging CANY through various venues such as Facebook, Monthly Conference Calls, Email blasts and discounted registration at our Seminars held during the Council’s Mid-Year and Annual Conventions.  We also offer opportunities for your CA to join an organizational committee and take part in generating exciting programs and valuable benefits for our membership. Joining a committee offers a unique and valuable opportunity for fellowship, new experiences and growth as we serve alongside one another. 

We believe that you and your CA’s will find that the programs and activities of CANY are innovative and a reflection of the shared interests and needs of your CA’s.  Along with the opportunities and benefits that membership provides, we believe that CA’s must be continuously trained and encouraged to take ownership of their ‘front line’ position in representing chiropractic interests.  In doing so, we find that the sense of belonging can have a very positive effect on the job satisfaction and commitment of your CA’s. 

As the leadership of CANY, we want you to know that we encourage only positive interaction and communications among our membership.  We stand for respect for both the profession and for all of our Chiropractors.  It’s very important to us that CANY be a safe, positive and productive atmosphere dedicated to growth and fellowship for both CA’s and the doctors we serve. 

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to email Beth Sarris at or call Barbara at the New York Council Central Office at 718-497-0970.
