Message from Chair
On behalf of your colleagues on the OMSPAC Board, I hope you take a minute to read the 2017 OMSPAC Annual Report and take note of the contribution statistics and efforts undertaken by OMSPAC in the last year.

One piece of information that stood out to me is the continued decline in member contributions. Contributions are down $139,000 over the last three years. OMSPAC’s efforts to elect members of Congress who understand and support the specialty and build relationships with those who may not necessarily be familiar with our work are contingent upon AAOMS members’ support. OMSPAC benefits all AAOMS members, but unfortunately only 14 percent of eligible members contribute to OMSPAC.

If you have not contributed yet this year, I request you consider making your contribution today. If you have already given this year, please encourage your colleagues to do so. Per federal election law, only OMSPAC-eligible AAOMS members may contribute to the PAC; therefore, your AAOMS.org login credentials are required to access this site.

Sincerely,

Harry Y. Canter Jr., DDS
2018 OMSPAC Chair
A look ahead to Congressional elections
As the 115th Congress moves along in its second year, each day brings us closer to yet another high stakes election in President Donald Trump’s first mid-term election.

OMSs in action
OMSs have delivered $207,000 to federal candidates so far during the 2018 election cycle while discussing issues of importance to the specialty.
 
OMSPAC fundraising status
Between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2017, OMSPAC raised $372,501 from 14.22 percent of the membership. That’s down $51,585 from the same time last year.
