April 3, 2013 — The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) announced that executive vice president Bill O’Connell will retire from his post later this year to pursue personal interests and focus on his health.
“Bill has been a superb leader of our staff organization,” said ACA’s Board Chairman Mike Simone, DC. “He has always been a great friend to the profession and an experienced voice offering thoughtful advice to our Board of Governors.”
“We are indeed at an important crossroad for ACA,” said ACA President Keith Overland, DC. “We appreciate Bill’s insightful contribution to this effort and understand his need to focus on health. The Board is evaluating the most desirable leadership model to continue ACA’s efforts in realizing its vision for the future.”
Reflecting on his three years at the helm of ACA’s staff organization, O’Connell said, “I was so pleased to have succeeded in leading the ACA to improved financial stability, greater connection with goal-directed action, and a focus on cooperation between staff and volunteer efforts. This is a time of significant transition to ACA’s aspirations reflected in its commitment to a new 10-year vision. I will retire this summer, but I stand ready to help ACA through this leadership transition.”
