Speak with a collective voice

June 2018 – Vol. 37, No. 5

ENT PAC, the political action committee of the AAO-HNS, financially supports congressional candidates and incumbents who will advance issues important to otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. Since your AAO-HNS annual dues cannot be used for political purposes, ENT PAC was established to accept voluntary contributions, enabling our members to speak with a collective voice.

ENT PAC is a nonpartisan, issue-driven entity that supplements the Academy’s legislative advocacy efforts and helps to increase the visibility of the specialty on Capitol Hill and with key policymakers.

ENT PAC Investor status runs on a calendar basis, so membership must be renewed each year.* To learn more about ENT PAC and the Academy’s political efforts, visit www.entpac.org (log-in with your AAO-HNS member ID and password) or contact entpac@entnet.org for assistance.

*Contributions to ENT PAC are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. Contributions are voluntary, and all members of the American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery have the right to refuse to contribute without reprisal. Federal law prohibits ENT PAC from accepting contributions from foreign nationals. By law, if your contributions are made using a personal check or credit card, ENT PAC may use your contribution only to support candidates in federal elections. All corporate contributions to ENT PAC will be used for educational and administrative fees of ENT PAC, and other activities permissible under federal law. Federal law requires ENT PAC to use its best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation, and the name of the employer of individuals whose contributions exceed $200 in a calendar year.
