ABCA Convention 2024

Rimba by Ayana – Bali

22 – 24 August

Convention 2024 will be all about growth. Growing your skills, growing your connections, growing your practice, growing ABC and growing the profession. An opportunity to advance your skills and knowledge to thrive in 2024 and beyond.

As an association, ABCA has seen growth in many areas such as industry engagement, research pipelines, online offerings and the skill level of our practitioners, but the most important thing to us has, and will always be the ABCA community members. Convention is a chance to celebrate each and every one of you, get to know each other better, and create a supportive network, not only within Australia and New Zealand, but globally. Anyone who’s been to an ABCA Convention will attest- it’s a vibe!

Heading back to Bali, where the very first ABCA Convention was held in 2015, we have such fond memories of it as one of the major stepping stones for ABCA, and for the growth we’ve had since. Each Convention that has followed, in Palm Cove, Singapore and Sanctuary Cove has reminded us of why we exist –  to bring together a community that enriches lives. 

We are looking forward to bringing the highest level of speakers, skill development and FUN times that have become synonymous with ABCA Conventions to Bali in 2024.

Set at the beautiful Rimba by Ayana Resort, in the Jimbaran region, approx. 12 km from Bali’s International Airport. This resort is often listed amongst Bali’s best, set on 90 hectares, boasting 14 pools and 26 restaurants and bars across 3 interconnected properties. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding what to do in your downtime. We have negotiated a 20% off room rate, including breakfast for 7 days, and will share those booking details as soon as the resort activates that group code for us.

A unique special delivery is on its way from Croatia, via Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Kenneth John Fuller has a message not to be missed. A 1993 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport, Iowa, Ken will move your very being and touch your hearts with his high energy, focus of purpose, and passion. After nearly 31 years of constant practice serving to improve the lives of others, his geeky fun approach to Life still brings him back for more each and every day.

An ABC Convention in Prague, 2018, created a paradigm shift so powerful, causing Ken to go All-In on this ABC train by converting three locations from Gonstead/Diversified to ABC in ten days, and has never looked back. Although Dr. Fullers biggest thrill remains working side by side daily with his daughter and ABC Technician Vannessa Fuller, and lives and thrives whilst adjusting babies and puppies, technique will be the last thing on his mind during his rock star presentation.

His hobby is research, having completed a Master’s in Public Health and so far having published 8 peer reviewed papers. He is an adjunct academic at ACC and is an ABC instructor since 2014. He also holds a Bachelor of Commerce.

His presentation is sure to draw back the curtain, open the kimono or as some would say – go full mask off!

Feedback from Convention 2022, Sanctuary Cove:

“Thanks to everyone for an incredible 3 days! You all rock! It’s inspiring and empowering to be involved with ABCA and ABC. Its very rare to come across such an amazing group of people. We have an extraordinary balance between masculine and feminine traits within the group and this is also a rare find amongst organisations. I believe it is a major driving force that will continue to propel us forward with momentum and courage! I’ve never attended an event with that level of collective authenticity among people. I loved hearing everyone’s stories. As a group we have incredible characteristics of empathy, trust, innovation, creativity, inclusivity, equity, we embrace hard conversations, we can give and receive feedback, problem solve and make ethical decisions! The effects of this gathering will be far reaching. I love you all!!!”

 

“Overall it was an awesome weekend, but a highlight for me was connecting with more ABC chiros. I was blown away by how friendly and passionate everyone was. Such an amazing community to be a part of.”

 

“Loved the vibe you guys carried in the room throughout the seminar, and the Convention itself was amazing.”

 

Feedback from Convention 2019, Singapore:

“I thought the whole thing was absolutely fantastic. The best convention of the three I’ve attended. The community team building, motivation and learning was exemplary. The choice of venue and all the inclusions of food and beverage was extremely good value. 10/10”

 

“Hotel was fabulous, organization was seamless, the tribe was awesome, the flow and feel were delicious.”
