PAC completes its first full year

From the March ACP Observer, copyright 2006 by the American College of Physicians.

ACP Services Political Action Committee (PAC) ended its first full year of operation, raising nearly $58,000 and making contributions to 26 candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate.

ACP Services PAC is dedicated to protecting the interests of internists and their patients by backing candidates for federal office who understand and support the concerns of the internal medicine community.

"The PAC plays a key role in helping our grassroots members build stronger relationships with their Congressional representatives," said ACP Services PAC Chair Joseph W. Stubbs, FACP.

In 2005, the top five states with the most PAC contributors were New York, California, Florida, Alaska, and Virginia.

The PAC is administered by ACP Services Inc., which was established in 1998 as a 501c6 organization to provide advocacy, practice management and other services for internist-members. ACP members automatically are members of ACP Services Inc. As a 501c3 organization, ACP is prohibited by the Internal Revenue Code from establishing a PAC.
