October 22, 2009 — The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) broke ground on a 15,000 square foot, $2.5 million dollar building Oct. 16. The target completion date is May 27, 2010.
NBCE President Dr. Vernon Temple along with members of the NBCE Executive Committee Drs. Edwin Weathersby, Richard Cole and Ted Scott, and Daniel Saint-Germain, president of the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards and chair of the NBCE Developmental Committee, were on hand to welcome special guests, including Larry Steel, architect. Opening remarks were made by Horace Elliott, NBCE executive vice president, Greeley, Colo. Mayor Ed Clark, Greeley Chamber of Commerce President Sarah MacQuiddy, and Terry Drahota representing Drahota Construction of Fort Collins, Colo.
The new building will house state-of-the-art audiovisual and teleconferencing equipment, which will enhance the ability of test committee members to develop future examinations testing basic science and clinical knowledge and the demonstration of clinical competency.
Each year more than 300 visitors, representing state licensing boards, chiropractic college faculty, and subject matter experts meet at the NBCE to develop standardized written and practical examinations for candidates seeking chiropractic licensure throughout the United States and in many foreign countries.
