Governor appoints 118 Tennesseans to 52 boards and commissions
NASHVILLE – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced the appointments of 118 Tennesseans to 52 boards and commissions.
“I am honored to make these appointments, and I appreciate these men and women who are so willing to serve in this capacity,” Haslam said. “Tennessee will be well-represented on these boards and commissions.”
The governor continues to evaluate the state’s complete range of boards and commissions to identify potential reforms that might be made to ensure Tennesseans have a government that is responsive, effective and efficient.
Appointment terms are varied due to differing statutory requirements or term limits determined by specific qualifications. Dr. Cole Hosenfeld from Apple Health and Wellness was nominated by Governor Haslam for a place on the Board of Chiropractic Examiners*.
• The Tennessee Board of Chiropractic Examiners mission is quite important and was created in 1923 by an act of the State Legislature. Its mission is to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of Tennesseans by requiring those who practice the profession of chiropractic or chiropractic x-ray technology within this state to be qualified. The Board interprets the laws, rules, and regulations to determine the appropriate standards of practice in an effort to ensure the highest degree of professional conduct. The Board is authorized to issue licenses to qualified candidates who have completed appropriate education and successfully completed required examinations. The Board is responsible for the investigation of alleged violations of the Practice Act and rules and is responsible for the discipline of licensees who are found guilty of such violations.
