The Wisconsin Medical Society is currently accepting nominations to the WISMedPAC Board of Directors. WISMedPAC is the Society’s political action committee (PAC), and its Board is responsible for guiding the Society’s political contribution efforts.
The WISMedPAC Board meets quarterly and works to ensure that physicians are active participants in the political process. Primary responsibilities include directing PAC contributions to those candidates who are seeking election in key state races, are serving in leadership roles or have shown serious interest in health care policy. The Board also authorizes contributions from WISMedPAC to various legislative fundraising committees.
During its Jan. 28 meeting, the Society’s Board of Directors will appoint between eight and 16 nominees to the WISMedPAC Board. Appointments are for one year.
Nominations and questions should be e-mailed to Heidi Green. The deadline is Monday, Jan. 9. (Society members may nominate themselves.) More information about the Society’s political opportunities is available online.
