Other FUN Events!
“A Better Way” Movie Screening
Saturday, September 21: 7:30p. Mackinac Room. This incredible documentary (see the trailer at www.abetterwayfilm.com) is the first of its kind. Few have been brave enough to go head-to-head with Big Pharma – until now! Americans consume more than 50 percent of prescribed drugs worldwide, and the pharmaceutical companies don’t want patients to get better – the current “disease care” system generates too much money. Approximately 21 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product is spent on illness. This film aims to start educating our country so that we will simply stop buying into the lie that is health care in the 21st Century. Experts included in the film include MAC Fall Convention speaker Dr. Tabor Smith and MAC Vice President/Director of External Affairs Dr. Lisa Olszewski of Chelsea! Watch the trailer today and join the fight!
VIP Party – “Homecoming”
Friday, September 20: 9-11:30p. 42° North. Come to the VIP Party and show your “school spirit” for chiropractic! Homecoming is a treasured annual tradition for students and alumni at schools across the nation. The MAC is “borrowing” this tradition for the VIP Party at Fall Convention. All Presidents, Ambassadors, and Century Club members are invited to this exciting event, which features fantastic music, tasty hors d’oeuvres, and an open bar, so you won’t have to spike the punch bowl like when you were in high school (you know who you are)! Join your peers and MAC leadership at this exclusive event, which is sure to be the party of the year!
Saturday Reception – Another Chance to Show Your Spirit!
Saturday, September 21: 6-7p. Our “Homecoming” theme continues at this fantastic Saturday evening reception! Immediately following classes, join us in the Exhibit Hall for another chance to meet and greet our vendors and your peers! Snacks and refreshments will be available as you make your way through the hall, and there just might be some chances for you to win some cash and/or fabulous prizes! And, the results of our Silent Auction will be revealed. Don’t miss this last chance to meet and greet your peers and our loyal vendors in an informal setting this weekend!
League of Chiropractic Women (LCW) Reception
Saturday, September 21: 7p. The mission of the LCW is to inspire and support women in chiropractic while advancing the principles and practice of our profession.

Come and see what the League of Chiropractic Women is all about at this short reception at Volt in the main lobby. At 7:30p, we will head to the screening of “A Better Way,” which features LCW President Dr. Lisa Olszewski!

The MAC silent auction is back! Our incredible exhibitors and sponsors have donated some excellent items, and this year Prestige Authentics will also be on site with their awesome collection! Prestige travels across the nation with their silent auction items, helping organizations like the MAC maximize our donations. Their items include sports, entertainment, and even presidential memorabilia, and includes such items as autographed guitars, helmets, jerseys, purses, fine jewelry, and much more! Make sure you check out their area in the Ambassador Pre-Function area right outside the doctor classrooms and see everything they have to offer!
Also, walk through the Hall and see the prizes donated by our exhibitors. Be sure to ask vendors if they have silent auction prizes, or if they are doing their own in-booth door prize drawings. Check the MAC website for prizes and additional information.
