The morning session will provide you a briefing on the current legislative issues. We will partner you with an experienced colleague and then visit state legislators at the Capital.

ISA Leadership Workshops

ISA Leadership Workshops

ISA offered a unique opportunity on October 7th for 20 members to refine their leadership skills.

This Leadership Challenge is backed by over 25 years of original research. A special consultant facilitated an exclusive one-day workshop in which participants learned more about the Five Practices to evaluate and develop their leadership skills. This Challenge featured a 3600 review from colleagues in order to help gain a personal and external perspective and potential actions to become a more effective leader.
This Challenge was extremely well-received and represents one of several future opportunities for ISA members to develop management and leadership skills. ISA will continue to offers these complimentary workshops in the future. Please stay tuned and register promptly as they will continue to fill quickly. Additional travel costs will be subsidized for members who reside in central or southern Illinois.

These workshops will most likely continue to be held at the ASA headquarters in Schaumburg.

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.
