We work in an unusual industry. Currently, there are no economically beneficial legal avenues – for one person, 20 people, or even 100 of us – that would justify the cost and risk of formally addressing the market threats and monopolistic initiatives put forth by manufacturers. By coming together as a community to share our experiences and aggregate our funds, our membership can affect real change.
The ACBA is a nonprofit trade association devoted to advocacy and research on behalf of our member aesthetic clinicians and their non-OEM providers.
The ACBA aims to be a vigorous advocate and sophisticated ambassador in legal and regulatory venues across the country and in markets around the world, giving member clinicians and their providers a powerful voice in the marketplace. As the ACBA grows in membership, so will it also grow in service to the members, their practices, and their business partners.
This is why we started the ACBA. We invite you to read about the valuable benefits afforded to ACBA members. With several levels of membership offered, opportunities exist for all practitioners to participate and have access to the wealth of ACBA resources.
What important benefits do members of the ACBA receive upon payment of a one-time membership fee?
- Change: First and foremost, membership will bring about change to our industry. Together we can put an end the predatory practices that feed on our businesses.
- Equity Protection: The ACBA Buyer's Guide offers invaluable strategies that will help you protect your equity in the capital assets purchased.
- Legal Assistance: With the help of some of the world’s best litigators, we will begin the legal process to protect our next capital equipment purchases from valuation erosion and in doing so, potentially recover a portion of the losses we have incurred by manufacturers’ monopolistic actions.
