An Important Message from CC/AACE Past President, Elizabeth Holt, MD, FACE
As you know, AACE has an active PAC (Political Action Committee) that financially supports the campaigns of candidates for the US Senate and US House of Representatives from both parties based on their support for AACE priorities and issues. In the past, these issues have included increasing reimbursements for DXA testing and repeal of the flawed SGR formula that continues to threaten access to care and our ability to sustain viable medical practices due to drastic decreases in Medicare reimbursement.
AACEPAC is dependent on our contributions to successfully engage in political advocacy and help (re)elect those who can help us. No matter your political views, I think we can all agree that AACE supports our efforts to be successful in the business and practice of medicine. A contribution to AACEPAC is money well-spent that will return to you multiplied as better reimbursements and an improved practice environment.
Accordingly, I am issuing a challenge to CC/AACE members to step up and make a financial contribution to AACEPAC today! A suggested minimum contribution is $50, but of course, larger amounts are welcome. The contribution needs to be from your personal, not business, funds and is not tax deductible. You can click here to go directly to the AACEPAC website to make your contribution.
As an added incentive, and in concert with a competition announced by AACEPAC to increase member participation, I would like to offer the chance to win complimentary CC/AACE membership for 2013. Each member who makes a contribution to AACEPAC between now and August 31 will be entered in a drawing for free membership. There are currently only TWO CC/AACE chapter members who are AACEPAC contributors (and one of them is me!), so everyone has a chance to win (and if the other member gives an additional contribution, he/she will also be entered into the dues drawing).
If you have any questions about AACEPAC, please feel free to contact me directly. I am currently on the AACEPAC Board of Directors and would be happy to discuss AACEPAC with each of you.
