LEGAL STATEMENT: For the advancement of the specialty of chiropractic orthopedics, the CCO is a member of an orthopedic coalition consisting of the CCO, ACO and ACCO.

CCO's function in the coalition is for the advancement of the orthopedic syllabus as presented at CCE colleges, as the national trade association voice for orthopedics through the ACA, and supports and provides post diplomate education.

However, the CCO is not involved in the examination or certification process leading to diplomate status; although both the CCO and ACA formally recognize the Academy's certification and diplomat status, as well as the diplomate status of the ABCO.
