Donna L. Craft, D.C. (Davenport ’86), of Brooklyn, Mich., was elected as president of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) in Myrtle Beach, S.C., at the NBCE annual meeting on May 2. Dr. Craft becomes the first woman elected as president in the organization’s 51-year history. She previously served as NBCE vice president in 2012-2013, secretary in 2005-2006 and treasurer in 2010.

Dr. Craft said, “I am honored to take on the important role of day-to-day leadership at the NBCE. Our first task is to maintain fiscal responsibility, while responding to current opportunities for growth. This includes overseeing the computer-based testing initiative, where success may lead to a model that can be expanded to include other chiropractic college test sites. In the post-licensure area, our focus will be on building a solid foundation for the Ethics and Boundaries Assessment Services as they offer their products to licensed professions beyond chiropractic.”
