What is NYSSPS PAC?
NYSSPS PAC is a group of plastic surgeons who work together to raise money and make contributions to political campaigns. NYSSPS PAC only supports politicians who work to improve health care, patient care and the future of plastic surgery. Through this support, NYSSPS PAC helps elect individuals who promote policies that improve the lives of our physicians and our patients.
Why is NYSSPS PAC important to me?
Through NYSSPS PAC, NYSSPS members can speak with one voice so elected officials clearly hear our position on policies that affect our patients and specialty. A strong PAC allows us to impact change that will positively affect both you and your patients.
Where does my NYSSPS PAC contribution go?
100 percent of your personal contribution to NYSSPS PAC directly supports candidates who work to further NYSSP’s public policy issues. Every dollar raised is seen by members of the New York State legislature as further evidence that NYSSPS has the support of a strong network of like-minded physicians. Every dollar will better position our success in advocating on issues that will affect your practice and your patients.
The NYS Election Law places aggregate calendar year limits on the amount of political contributions that can be made by individuals and corporations.
Please consult your legal counsel if you have any question pertaining to the possible impact of political contributions on the tax exempt status of the corporation.
