This annual event is sponsored by the GCSS and takes place each fall in various cities in the US. The purpose of the Meeting of the Minds is to create a forum for a serious discussion of specific aspects of the Gonstead System. Each year the meeting has a different topic for discussion with guest presenters, speakers, panels, and research updates. The formal meeting convenes on Saturday through Sunday, with several doctor/student activities scheduled for Friday afternoon and evening.

CE Credits
Up to 12 hours of CE are available in select states with your attendance at MoM for re-licensing. (Verify your state’s eligibility with GCSS)

Who Can Attend
The Meeting of the Minds is an opportunity to learn from many of the Gonstead system’s most accomplished doctors and other experts. Because it is a participatory event, MoM is open to GCSS Fellows, Diplomates, Diplomate-candidates, and Gonstead chiropractors who have been in practice at least 20 years. However, if you have between 10 and 19 years in practice and are not yet a Gonstead Diplomate you may attend Meeting of the Minds ONE time. Attendance at future meetings requires a Diplomate Application.  Membership with the GCSS is not a pre-requisite. For more information, contact GCSS.

Register now for this great weekend or by E-mailing, or by telephone. Domestic callers use the toll free 888-556-4277. International callers should call 831-476-1873.

Friday Night Free Student-Masters Workshop
The traditional and popular GCSS workshop begins at 5:00 pm on Friday. Doctors will share their years of expertise with students—the next generation—and local chiropractors honing their skills. Everyone is invited to attend this complementary workshop and Pizza Party that follows.
