We will To maintain the independence of the Association, to promote traditional Chinese medicine, to protect the interests of members, to increase unity within the Association, to create an academic atmosphere and improve industry standards through continuing education, and the continued promotion of traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture on an international level. Working with other TCM and Acupuncture associations in other provinces, persuade federal government to cancel the HST.
In regards to the draft for the registration regulation sent out by the regulatory board, I wish to clarify the following points:
- The grandparent registration will be upheld, and any practitioner with a sufficient patient registry will qualify.
- With regard to the English-Chinese language barrier. Those with insufficient communication skills will be given a conditional registration.
- As for the title of "TCM Dr." The law currently already recognizes the title of "Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine" but registration for said title will not be implemented until the near future.
I hope all members will continue to keep up to date with the upcoming process of registration and regulation, as it is a matter we are all invested in.
Thank everybody, enjoy the diner.
