In March, the Orthopaedic Political Action Committee (OrthoPAC), which supports candidates for federal office who champion orthopaedic issues and helps advance the legislative agenda of AAOS, was named the 2019 Outstanding Association PAC by the Public Affairs Council. The OrthoPAC was nominated for its Capitol Club Black Card campaign, which created an exclusive membership card, fashioned to look like an elite black credit card, for the $1,000+ Capitol Club donors. The card also doubled as a USB flash drive loaded with PAC peer-to-peer materials.

The prestigious award is a testament to OrthoPAC’s best election cycle in its history and would not have been possible without the amazing support of orthopaedic surgeons who understand the importance of political advocacy in advancing high-quality musculoskeletal care.
