Looking to get connected with the Society - join us at the annual House of Delegates meeting on Saturday, April 27, 2019. ISA is governed by a House of Delegates which is the process we follow to elect officers and formalize a discussion into an action plan.

Any Active status member interested in advancing the Society's mission to educate, advocate and represent anesthesiologists practicing in Illinois is welcome to register and participate.

Your role is to attend a four-hour meeting to discuss issues affecting our specialty and formulate an action plan for the Board to implement. Bring us issues you think deserve the Society's attention and keep your colleagues informed.

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.
