ISAPAC is a bi-partisan, non-ideological political organization. It supports candidates based upon their positions on issues impacting our specialty. Because the issues that ISA works to address - patient safety, scope of practice, insurance / payor issues, professional liability reform etc. - are not party line issues or ideological issues, supporters of anesthesiology can be found along the entire political spectrum with widely differing views on issues outside of those impacting anesthesiologists.

Where does my contribution go?

*Pro-physician candidates
*Republicans and Democrats
*Incumbents and challengers

All ISAPAC contributions are voluntary and the level of participation changes from year to year, ISAPAC bases its budget upon the contributions it receives. It is able to be more aggressive and participate in more campaigns when contribution levels are high. It is less aggressive and participates in fewer campaigns when contribution levels are low.
