Improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.

Nominations for WISMedPAC Board of Directors due Jan. 19

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, 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 January 27 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 Friday, Jan. 19. (Society members may nominate themselves.) More information about the Society’s political opportunities is available online.
