Orthopaedic Advocacy Week

Get Invested with Orthopaedic PAC

The theme for this year’s OrthoPAC Day of Giving is “Get Invested.” To encourage additional support, and thank members who already made a commitment, OrthoPAC is offering two exciting benefits as part of Orthopaedic Advocacy Week.

Winner's Choice Sweepstakes

The Winner’s Choice Sweepstakes comprises three categories: $5,000 contributors, $1,000 contributors, and $100 for active fellows and $25 for residents. All members who contribute to OrthoPAC between January 1 and August 7 will be automatically entered to win an exciting prize.

Charity Match

The OrthoPAC is also offering a PAC Match Benefit so that new contributors can double the impact of their donations. By joining the PAC and supporting the profession, members can also give back to the community. OrthoPAC will match any donation with a contribution to a 501c3 charity of choice. Up to $100,000 has been allocated for the match program.

About the Orthopaedic PAC

Many aspects of orthopaedic practice are affected by decisions made in Washington, D.C. The Orthopaedic PAC's (OrthoPAC's) main priority is to give surgeons a voice in these discussions and ensure that PAC contributions are effectively disbursed to advocate for the orthopaedic profession. Here are four fast facts about the OrthoPAC...

  1. It is the only political action committee dedicated solely to representing orthopaedic surgeons in the nation’s capitol.
  2. It is nonpartisan and makes political contributions to Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and other party groups who share and support our views.
  3. It elects and reelects candidates to federal office who understand issues of importance to the care of musculoskeletal patients as well as the maintenance and betterment of the orthopaedic profession.
  4. It is governed by the PAC Executive Committee which reports to the AAOS Advocacy Council.
