The California Medical Association (CMA) Political Action Committee (CALPAC) shattered all previous fundraising records in the history of the PAC by raising roughly $173,000 during CMA’s annual meeting this past weekend in Anaheim.
In a record-setting show of support for CALPAC, CMA members bested last year’s mark of $119,000 while also exceeding the $140,000 goal established at the opening of the House of Delegates meeting.
The donations collected over the weekend, as well as all contributions made to CALPAC, will be used to support candidates who share medicine’s agenda and priorities, and will work to affect policies beneficial to the house of medicine.
Successful legislative advocacy depends upon an integrated approach, consisting of lobbying, continuing grassroots activity and political action through CALPAC. CALPAC is operated by physicians for physicians. By focusing physician resources, CALPAC supports hundreds of candidates for state and federal office who share our philosophy and vision of the future of health care and medical practice.
