CCNM Business Association hopes to educate students on important business matters pertaining to the naturopathic career. The club aims to offer insight which will compliment information taught in practice management and illustrate the various forms that business pertains to naturopathic income. The CCNMBA was founded in September of 2013, at a time when a lack of business confidence, an ongoing fear around difficulties of managing a practice and a progressive uncertainty for the future was felt by many students. With the aim of addressing these apprehensions, the CCNMBA was created to form a community at CCNM for business-minded individuals to network, learn, support one another and openly address the real obstacles that exist within our profession as it relates to business. Since our inception, we have grown to be one of the largest NSA student clubs and have found a purpose at the college and among the profession. Since founding the club, we have held ND panels on successes and failures; navigated partnerships with accountants, financial advisors and lawyers; explored the marketing, branding and differentiation for the ND; explored many different faces of an ND, and delved into building an effective presentation for community. Most importantly, we answer the question of what it means to be both a naturopathic doctor and an entrepreneur. This year, our mandate is to provide valuable educational and experiential opportunities for students and NDs. We look forward to our third annual business summit in January 2017 and highly anticipate meeting our roster of unique speakers who will explore how changing technology will impact NDs, how the ND market is evolving and the various occupations that exist for NDs.
