As healers, physicians abhor violence. We were shocked and dismayed by the events of January 6 at the United States Capitol. Presently, the AMPAC Board of Directors will begin its normal process of considering contributions to candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate. The January votes of incumbent members of Congress will be considered as part of our decision-making process throughout the 2022 cycle. AMPAC will not make any campaign contributions to members of Congress who voted to decertify the electoral college results in the wake of violent acts at the Capitol for the next six months. We acknowledge our fiduciary responsibility to pursue our duties with due diligence and to maintain our bipartisan reputation in support of the AMA’s federal advocacy agenda.
Ever wonder how Doctors get elected to Congress or your state legislature? Considering a run for office for yourself? The AMPAC Candidate Workshop will teach you how to run a winning political campaign, just like we taught many of your AMA colleagues over the years. The Virtual Candidate Workshop will be conducted over the course of two consecutive weekends: May 1-2 and 8-9, 2021.
Registration for the Virtual Candidate Workshop is now closed.
