PAC Information 2016

ASHNHA Annual Conference Participant,

We are glad you are planning to join us for our 2016 Annual Conference in Soldotna. We are less than three months away from an election that could see unprecedented voter turnout. ASHNHA’s Political Action Committee (PAC) needs your support in order to contribute to candidates that will work to support a strong health care system in Alaska. In the past, the ASHNHA PAC has almost exclusively relied on raising funds from an auction at our annual meeting. This year, to make it easier for you, and to ensure more of your money goes directly to the cause, we are asking members to make a contribution rather than request items for an auction. PAC supporters will be recognized with name badge ribbons during our annual meeting.

ASHNHA, through its PAC, has a tradition of supporting candidates for public office. The PAC provides the opportunity for members/administration to dialogue with candidates about the importance of the delivery of health care services by our members. Because the PAC falls under the jurisdiction of the Alaska Public Offices Commission, certain rules apply. Here is a summary of these rules.

•    Donations to the PAC may not exceed $500 per year from an individual.
•    Corporate donations are NOT allowed.
•    Checks (non-corporate) and credit cards (non-corporate) are accepted by the PAC.
•    The ASHNHA PAC does not accept cash.

Click here to make a contribution and help us meet our goal of $10,000. There will also be opportunities to contribute during the annual conference. Special thanks to members who contributed during our May Board Meeting and helped us reach the halfway mark. If you have any questions, please email [email protected] or call 907-646-1444.
