A longtime member of the MAC Board of Directors, Squires also serves on the MAC Government Relations and Leadership committees. Along with his duties with the MAC, he serves as the state of Michigan’s Alternate Delegate to the American Chiropractic Association and as the chair of the ACA Political Action Committee (ACA-PAC). He regularly advocates for non-drug pain management, full inclusion in Medicare, and increased access to chiropractic care in the Veterans and TRICARE health systems to members of Congress, including Reps. Jack Bergman, Bill Huizenga, and John Moolenaar. His efforts were instrumental in Rep. Huizenga co-sponsoring H.R. 344, the Chiropractic Health Parity for Military Beneficiaries Act.”

Squires was recently honored by the ACA with its F. Dow Bates PAC Bulldog Award, given annually to an ACA member who has shown outstanding advocacy and political leadership on behalf of ACA and chiropractic patients.
