Illinois Society of Anesthesiology Political Action Committee (ISAPAC)

What is ISAPAC?

ISAPAC is the political piece of the Illinois Society of Anesthesiologists—a separate fund within ISA devoted solely to permitting anesthesiology to participate in elections involving the Illinois General Assembly’s state House Representatives and state Senators.

Why is involvement important?

ISAPAC must remain active in state elections to keep the concerns of anesthesiologists in the legislative forefront in Illinois. Involvement shows your political awareness and your concern about the future of our specialty. ISAPAC speaks for all anesthesiologists - the more members we have, the more effective we can be!

ASA Advocacy Center


The ASA Committee on Governmental Affairs has created numerous resources to assist members in advocacy efforts. Click here to join ASA’s Grassroots Network, check out the guide on how to get active, or learn how to host an elected official for a site visit at your hospital.

ISA Grassworks Network


The ISA Grassroots Network provides members an opportunity to get involved in the specialty’s advocacy efforts and provides anesthesiologists a strong and effective voice in legislative and regulatory affairs. The ISA Grassroots Network educates and activates members when the collective voices of anesthesiologists are needed to influence legislation, regulation or other actions that impact the specialty.

As an ISA Grassroots Network member, you will receive notifications to respond to action alerts and updates to keep you informed on important legislation. Click here to sign up.
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.
