Political Action Committee

Thousands of pieces of legislation and regulations are introduced at all levels of government each year.  Many of these proposals can impact our ability to practice and provide quality patient care. 

These proposals are submitted and reviewed by elected officials in New York State. As such, it is vital that we support candidates for elected office who support certified registered nurse anesthetists and the issues of importance to the profession. 

The Political Action Committee (PAC) helps support these candidates.  As such, it is critical that the PAC is robust so that we can effectively support the candidates that support us. Read our PAC FAQs to learn more.
