All former students of AECC University College, or its predecessor institution, Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, are automatically members, it is a great way to keep in touch with each other and find out the latest news from the University College. 

Alumni Reunion 2023 

Thanks to everyone who joined us at this years’ Alumni Reunion on Saturday 16th July 2022.  We had a great time seeing everyone from the various special year groups celebrating their graduation anniversaries, as well as those who hadn't been back in a while and wanted to reconnect.

         

We are planning to organise another Alumni Reunion get-together event in September / October of 2023, everyone is welcome to come to reconnect. No matter if it's a special anniversary year since graduating that you're celebrating, or that you've not been back in a while and wanted to see what's new, we'd love you to join us!

You can also stay up to date with announcements and updates by following our Alumni Facebook Page.

Treatment A Month (TAM) Club

The TAM (Treatment a Month) Club was started in 1999 by Principal, Kenneth Vall, and since then has raised over £320,000 to support chiropractic education, research and chiropractic student facilities at AECC University College. Specifically, it has enabled us in obtaining specialised equipment necessary for learning, contributed towards the equipment of clinical rooms and skills labs, and to facilitate student scholarships and hardship funds.

These contributions from members of the profession, such as those received through the TAM Club and legacy leaving can go a long way to help us to further advance chiropractic education, clinical training and research.

If you were a member of TAM previously and would like to re-join, we would be delighted to welcome you back. Equally, should you be interested in joining for the first time, you would be very welcome as a new member. Setting up the transaction couldn’t be easier and just requires you to complete a bank automated clearing system (BACS) transfer or by setting up a standing order with the cost of one treatment per month.

Without the support of the profession and particularly dedicated clinicians like you, we would not be able to provide the future generation of chiropractors with the high standard of education that the profession demands and deserves.

Contributions from members of the profession, such as those received via the TAM Club and Leave a Legacy, go a long way to help us to further advance the chiropractic profession through education.  If you would like to find out more or register to join the TAM Club, please email the Communications team or call 01202 436 200.

Our thanks goes out to those that contribute and for your continued support.
