The Osteopathic Political Action Committee (OPAC), the political arm of the American Osteopathic Information Association (AOIA) and the sole political action committee representing osteopathic physicians on the federal level, was established in 1979 to be the voice of the osteopathic profession in campaigns and elections. Governed by a Board of Directors made up of six osteopathic physicians, OPAC is constantly working to increase our effectiveness in elections and strengthen the clout of the physician community. OPAC's primary goal is to elect and re-elect pro-physician candidates to Congress. We accomplish this through direct support of OPAC endorsed candidates, providing voter information on elections, issues, and candidates, and the political activism of our members.
OPAC's political activities are funded by the voluntary contributions of AOIA members above and beyond their membership dues. These contributions make it possible for OPAC and the osteopathic profession to have significant impact in elections.
Contributions at every level are vital to OPAC's success. Even the smallest contribution adds to the growing army of osteopathic physicians standing up for our profession. Members of OPAC are instrumental to ensuring we have both the funds and the people to be effective in the political arena.
