A political action committee (PAC) is a transparent, legal, and federally monitored way for trade associations such as AMRPA to participate in the political process. The AMRPA PAC was created to ensure that Members of Congress prioritize the field of medical rehabilitation and support the highest quality of care for our patients.
The AMRPA PAC is funded by collecting voluntary contributions from employees of AMRPA member organizations. This allows us to leverage every donation into one strong fund for one strong voice. Our AMRPA PAC Board of Directors identifies political champions to support with these funds, so that the medical rehabilitation field can be recognized and understood on Capitol Hill.
AMRPA member organization executives and administrative personnel who are paid on a salary basis and who have policymaking, managerial, professional, or supervisory responsibilities, are eligible to make a voluntary contribution to the AMRPA PAC.
Rest assured that 100% of your donation will be spent on political campaign contributions as opposed to administrative and overhead expenses. Our effectiveness depends on how much elected officials understand our perspective. The AMRPA PAC helps us elect candidates who understand our point of view and will legislate on behalf of our field.
