SDAHO PAC is poised for a record year

140

With contributions exceeding the $36K mark, we are pleased to report an increase in both the number of donors and contributions from our members.

Your dollars are positively impacting candidate races in the 2016 election cycle, furthering our advocacy efforts on health care issues including Medicaid expansion.

We express our sincere appreciation to those who have contributed and a big thanks to the health system advocacy group for its efforts! Donors will receive well-earned recognition at the 90th Annual Convention in September. The 35 facilities that have achieved their goals are eligible for drawings for free Annual Convention registration and a travel scholarship for the AHA Annual Meeting.

The PAC will continue receiving donations until Dec. 31, and we are excited about our progress toward reaching our year-end goal:

  • 2016 PAC Goal: $46,000
  • Total donated to date: $36,060
