What is a NCSC
One of the key activities of FICS is the provision of sports chiropractic services at international events. This enables FICS to achieve our vision of providing access to sports chiropractic for all athletes. FICS continually seeks to develop and maintain relationships with the various Sporting Federations and National Council Sports Chiropractic (NCSC) across the globe.
FICS has a significant international membership base that includes over 26 current NCSC’s as valued members.
Registering a new NCSC with FICS
FICS has a Membership Commission whose primary role is to support NCSC and facilitate their growth in membership. The Membership Commission will assist you in starting up and subsequent ongoing support of your council.
The NCSC is required to develop articles and bylaws. FICS has templates in place to assist you in this development if requested. These organisational documents are designed to be simple and clear while being adequate to provide a basic structure for the new NCSC. The templates are purposely drafted to allow maximum flexibility for the NCSC to create an environment specific to the needs of the council while still maintaining a suitable governance structure. Those forming a new council may want to take legal advice about any requirements for a properly established legal association in the country – e.g. minimum requirements, the minimum number of members, etc.
To register an NCSC within your country, reach out to our Membership Commission via email@example.com. We look forward to assisting and guiding you through the process.
Refer to article 4.1 of the FICS Statutes for more information about registering a new NCSC.
