AAPD PAC Update

March 2021 Volume LVI Number 2

Thank you to All PAC Contributors for your Support in 2020
SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS TO THE SSPD
 
The PAC sent out an electronic annual report1 along with a video appeal targeted at the 2020-21 membership dues renewal cycle. This was expected to be a challenging year for PAC contributions given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, THANKS TO YOUR LOYAL SUPPORT we were pleasantly surprised to have held our own. View the PDF below to see the AAPD PAC contribution figures for 2020, broken down by districts.
 
Total contributions were about 1.5 percent ahead of the 2019 figure of $214,505. 1,003 contributions in 2020 is just slightly below the 1,029 contributions received in 2019, but the amount per contributor is higher than the 2019 average of $208.46.
 
The 2020 District competition winner is the Southeastern Society of Pediatric Dentistry, which leads in both total contributions and total hard dollars contributed.
 
A full list of 2020 contributors will be included in the May 2021 PDT.
 
ERRATA FROM NOVEMBER 2020 PDT
 
In the list of PAC-supported candidates, we neglected to list Congressman Dr. Roger Marshall2 (R-Kansas 1st) who successfully ran for an open Senate seat vacated due to retirement of Senator Pat Roberts. Also, Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) was not up for re-election in 2020; our support went to his Leadership PAC.
