Arlington, Va. — The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has appointed Karen Silberman, a seasoned association leader, as its new executive vice president. Silberman will assume responsibility for strategic initiatives and staff management at the association’s Washington, D.C.-area headquarters on Oct. 17.
Silberman comes to ACA with a history of driving organizational change, creating and sustaining performance oriented cultures and driving membership growth and value. Most recently, she served for four years as executive director of the Federal Bar Association (FBA), where she eliminated a budget deficit, significantly increased membership and nearly doubled program revenues. Among her achievements, she was responsible for launching a new student division as well as a new national conference, Women in the Law.
Before FBA, she served as executive director at both the Society of Human Resource Management Foundation and the National Coalition for Promoting Physical Activity.
A Washington, D.C. native, Silberman is a graduate of Indiana University at Bloomington, where she earned a master’s degree in Public Affairs with a focus in Nonprofit Management. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Oberlin College. In addition, she earned a Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential through the American Society of Association Executives. Silberman also serves as chair of the board of the Friends of the National Zoo.
“Karen brings precisely the right combination of experience and leadership that ACA needs at this time of change and opportunity in its history,” said ACA President David Herd, DC. “We are looking forward to working with her on several new initiatives, such as branding and governance review, that will invigorate the association and strengthen its ability to meet members’ needs.”
“I’m excited to join ACA at such a pivotal time in history for not only the organization and profession, but also the health care industry as a whole,” said Silberman. “I’m also delighted to be a part of the important effort to expand access to chiropractic services and to provide doctors of chiropractic with the information and tools they need to succeed.”

Silberman replaces Richard Miller, acting executive vice president and longtime ACA lobbyist who had served in an interim role since January 2015.

Foot Levelers Gears Up for Next Practice Xcelerator ProgramTM, Invitation-Only Training for DCs with Renowned Sports Chiropractor Dr. Tim Maggs

Proven to Grow Practices and Improve Outcomes, Next Sessions Take Place Oct. 27th and Nov. 17th Near Albany, NY

img_6845Roanoke, VA—October 6, 2016—Foot Levelers recently launched the Practice Xcelerator ProgramTM, a
partnership with renowned sports Chiropractor Dr. Tim Maggs of New York. Described as a “intensive training for DCs who are serious about improving their ‘orthotics game,’” the half-day session features training on Dr. Maggs’ Structural Fingerprint Exam®, with a strong emphasis on 3D digital scanning of the feet, radiology, and laser, among other protocols. Nearly 20 hand-selected doctors from around the country attended the first session on September 15th.

Dr. Maggs first developed the Structural Fingerprint Exam over 25 years ago while working with the New York Giants. Noting that care for players was focused on reacting to injuries, rather than preventing them, Dr. Maggs developed a system of pinpointing biomechanical and structural weaknesses in the body—weaknesses that could lead to injury. Using this preventative approach, all of Dr. Maggs’ patients walk away with an injury-prevention plan, which includes custom-made functional orthotics from Foot Levelers. Foot Levelers’ custom-made orthotics are research- proven to help correct pedal instabilities, absorb shock, and improve biomechanics to help reduce risk of injury.

The first Practice Xcelerator Program was a great success. Attendee Dr. Susan Cunico from Sandyson, NJ described it as “a top-notch event… I was able to learn pearls from Dr. Maggs and apply them to my practice the next day. I have been wanting to work with more athletes… Dr. Maggs and Foot Levelers have given us the tools, data, aFootlevelers Teamnd research.”

Proven to grow practices and improve outcomes, the next Practice Xcelerator Program sessions take place Oct. 27th and Nov. 17th near Albany, NY. DCs can request an invitation at and view the video at to learn more.
