APMA News - June 2012 - (Page 30)

Report from the APMAPAC Chair By Gerald D. Peterson, DPM Help Carry the Bucket Half the year is almost past, and at press time, we were projecting to have raised more than $400,000 for APMAPAC. We are making contributions to support candidates for office in the elections this fall who we hope will strongly support and understand the importance of podiatric medicine and health care. You are all aware of the 100th Anniversary of our association this year and the APMAPAC commitment to 100-percent participation in honor of this major event in our history. I hope you will act on APMAPAC’s request and send at least $100 to honor this special year. I hope you will consider contributing more as political action and involvement become more critical every year. If our message is to be heard, we must become active at every level. Advocacy by every member is a must! When you visit www.apma.org/PACDonate to make your donation, you also can visit the eAdvocacy section and write to your legislators to apprise them of your concerns as a constituent. By becoming involved in the process, you avail yourself of the opportunity to take full advantage of one of our nation’s greatest constitutional gifts. APMAPAC is deeply involved in the activities of this fall’s congressional elections and is making tough choices every day in support of candidates for office. Our decisions are based on candidates’ track records of support for our profession, feedback from state component societies regarding the candidates’ local support of podiatric medicine, and individual members’ input. We support candidates, regardless of party affiliation, who, when elected, will help us achieve our goals. You must, however, do your part. Please send your contribution to APMAPAC today. No contribution is too large or too small. Every dollar contributed goes to support our profession’s interests. We can’t be players if we are not at the table! I would like to publicly thank William Crotty, DPM; John Grady, DPM; and Michael Graham, DPM, for their continued support at the $5,000 level, and Ruth Ann Cooper, DPM; Amy Schunemeyer, DPM; and Stuart Tessler, DPM, for their gracious support at the $2,500 contribution level. These outstanding commitments of support are greatly appreciated. We understand not everyone has this level of passion, but every member should have some level of commitment, and that means you! Stop letting the next person carry the bucket for you. Feel the joy of being part of the team and enjoy the feeling of pride in our successes. Were you a contributor two years ago when APMA salvaged our inclusion in payments for DME such as diabetic shoes, orthotics, and BK walkers, or do you have to shrink and cringe when your fellow podiatric physician who contributed for you walks by at your next meeting? Act now and become a victor for the profession. Contribute today! n • Routine Foot Care • Multiple Procedures on Surgeries • Diabetic Shoes 20 years experience & specializing in PODIATRY reimbursement, let us show you how our services are “cost-effective” to your practice. Contact Dr. Peterson at pac@apma.org. PURPOSE: The American Podiatric Medical Association Political Action Committee’s purpose is to raise and disburse funds to candidates for federal office who support the legislative priorities and goals of the podiatric medical profession. *IMPORTANT: These are suggested amounts. You may contribute more, less, or not contribute without concern of being favored or disadvantaged. Occupation/employer information is required for aggregate annual contributions of more than $200.00 by the Federal Election Campaign Act.
