1. ICAI is the voice and leader of conservative chiropractic in Indiana. We maintain that the primary goal of chiropractic is to detect and correct the vertebral subluxation.
2. ICAI will perpetuate and champion the vitalistic (Innate) philosophy of health, recognizing that the human body is a self-developing, self-regulating, and self-healing organism.
3. ICAI maintains that the objective of Chiropractic is not just the "treatment" of pain, but the correction of the vertebral subluxation and the interference that prevents the organism from expressing its full Innate and genetic potential.
4. ICAI will continue to provide high quality chiropractic- centered CE seminars for our members and for the chiropractic profession statewide.
5. ICAI will defend the chiropractor’s right to use x-ray and other accepted other non-invasive analytical procedures for subluxation detection and analysis.

7. ICAI will remain vigilant and prepared to aggressively work to reject attempts by those who would try to incorporate the use of drugs and medications (prescription rights) into the chiropractic paradigm and scope of practice in Indiana.
8. ICAI stands for the right of every Hoosier to maintain the right to choose his or her own doctor and type of health care without being dictated to by a third party.
9. ICAI supports board approved chiropractic colleges and the education they provide through the development of support programs and student scholarships.
