California’s Board of Chiropractic Examiners (BCE) has been honored by the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards (FCLB) with the 2010 Dr. Earl L. Wiley Outstanding Chiropractic Licensing Board Award. BCE is now the only Chiropractic Board in the history of the award to receive the honor twice.

This international award was bestowed on the BCE at the FCLB’s Educational Congress in Baltimore, Maryland. It represents over three years of very hard work by the BCE, and is the highest award that can be bestowed upon a chiropractic regulatory board.

"The BCE has been working diligently to improve the standards of care in the chiropractic profession in California,” said Fred N. Lerner, D.C., Chair of the BCE. "Since 2007 we have made several regulatory improvements and have reduced our case resolution time down to one of the shortest of all the state’s healing arts boards. We have also implemented procedures that make us one of the most transparent regulatory boards in California, including live webcasting of our meetings.”

The Earl L. Wiley award is given each year to a board that has set a new standard for chiropractic regulation. The award means the board is recognized by its peers as a model for the excellence in carrying out its responsibility to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public.
