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!
