Best Practices: Physicians' Guide to State Legislation: State Political Action Committees
Political activity and the capacity to make the decision to financially support candidates are necessary prerequisites to the creation of a state chapter PAC. It is important that you determine whether your chapter has a political agenda that differs significantly from that of the state medical association. It may be to your chapter’s advantage to actively support the state medical association PAC rather than form your own. Each chapter must determine whether its interests will be best served if it is recognized as an independent entity or as a team player with the overall House of Medicine.
