Success in our advocacy efforts should not merely be measured by how well it helps me as a doctor. Instead, success should be measured by how effective we’ve been in helping our members reach their goals, the strength of the legislative voice we have, and our ability to keep our profession strong. We need to maintain a resilient leadership role as it relates to legislative advocacy, especially in a time when all healthcare professions are being challenged. Dentistry is being challenged—our livelihoods are being challenged. In order to do this, we need to make our voice heard in the legislative process. This involves “dentistry” being strongly heard on a local, state and national level.
Members of AzDENPAC appreciate the incredible success of our legislative efforts in the past several years and the hard work of our Council on Government Relations. We believe that our members need to express their appreciation for that success by being members of AzDENPAC. AzDENPAC believes that it is both your duty and responsibility to show support for AzDA’s advocacy on your behalf.
ADPAC played an incredibly important role in the re-election efforts of our own favorite son and Congressman Dr. Paul Gosar, and has made campaign contributions in several key Congressional races in Arizona across both parties. ADPAC has also been recognized that second most powerful healthcare PAC in the United States (just behind the cardiologists). To sustain and improve on that effort here in Arizona, we have committed to both broaden the span of our contributors, and raise more money.
