Dear Colleagues, Friends, and Supporters: 

The American Society of Acupuncturists had an amazing year of growth in 2016. Formally founded as a 501(c)6 not-for-profit in mid-2015, the ASA hit the ground running, coordinating and evolving the work that our state associations had been doing together for many years prior as the Council of State Associations. This report gives you an overview of the breadth and depth of our efforts as a collective entity. Medicine is largely governed at the state level, so the existence of a robust state association is foundational to the success of any profession in each state. However, there are commonalities of issues that state associations face, and some aspects of medical practice are governed at the national level, so a strong national voice and a national forum for knowledge sharing is also key to complete representation. In addition, there is a vibrant, international acupuncture community, and American practitioners need a platform for participation there as well.
