CAA Annual Report : 2011
4 Government Engagement and Communications strategies have been developed and incorporated into the board’s strategic plan. Specific media training for responding to political and policy issues has been arranged for the President and President-Elect. CAAN was invited to consult with the Central Queensland University to assist in the development of a new Chiropractic program at the university’s Mackay Campus. Professor Phillip Ebrall has been appointed to oversee the development and implementation of the program. The program is due to commence in February 2012. The CAAN joined a collaborative venture with Macquarie University to undertake a Health Workforce Research Study which was funded by CAAN by a grant of $150,000. The study has been completed and the outcomes will be announced at the National Development Forum in Melbourne in October. CAAN also provided funding of $20,000 to Dr Simon French for a study of Chiropractic in Victoria: Improving Evidence Based Care and Outcomes in the Victorian Chiropractic Profession through Better Understanding of Current Practice. At financial year end the CAAN had $505,000 allocated in its Research Fund. The board has undertaken to develop a Research Strategy to ensure that funds are dedicated to research that supports the company’s strategic direction. CAAN has streamlined some of its operational areas to reduce costs and assist our move towards a paperless environment. The company’s Annual Report is now available on the website and to members in hard copy only by request. The Membership Directory was discontinued and replaced by a web- based version. Costs saved ($33,000) are being redirected to a much improved Locate a Chiropractor function due to be released later in 2011. The Chiropractic Journal of Australia will soon be available to members on the website with printed versions reduced to a minimum. We have continued to seek feedback from members about our delivery of membership services. With the introduction of the Federal Health Professional and Support Services Award we commenced negotiations with a company to introduce a human resources (HR+) service for members. This program will be launched in November 2011 and will provide a hot-line for HR advice and resources to assist chiropractors to comply with this Award. At the end of financial year 2010-2011 the company is in a strong financial position and remains stable within its operations. Total Income generated during the year from members and non-member income streams including Bank Interest was $3,360,535. Total Expenditure incurred was $2,947,483. The Total Cash held is $4,820,818.
