November 2017 Volume LII Number 6

As part of our current fund-raising initiative, the AAPD PAC is instituting a competition among the five AAPD districts to determine for each calendar year which district is the top AAPD PAC supporter in terms of number of contributors and total hard dollars raised.* The standings below are as of Sept. 7, 2017, indicating that the Southeastern district is currently in the lead for number of contributors, but the Southwestern district is in the lead in terms of total hard dollars.

Thanks to the many of you that have already supported the AAPD PAC via the voluntary PAC contribution "check-off" on your 2017-18 dues statement.

If you have not yet given this year, we need your support. The voluntary recommended support level for new dentists is only $100. If have been a regular PAC contributor at recommended level of $250, why not jump up to the next level of support such as Cabi- net ($500-999) or Patriot ($1000 and above)? You can contribute online at https://www.aapd.org/advocacy/pac_contributions/.

*Remember that if you want your dollars applied directly to candidate support, please make your PAC contribution via a personal credit card or check. Such support counts as "hard dollars’ for a PAC. Contributions from a corporate account must be applied to "soft dollars", which can be used for PAC administrative and related advocacy expenses but not direct candidate support.

For further information about the AAPD PAC, please contact PAC Secretary C. Scott Litch at (312) 337-2169, ext. 29, or slitch@aapd.org.

Dr. Jeannie Beauchamp
PAC Steering Committee Chair
