IMPAC Seeks New Physician Leaders

Date of Publication December 8, 2017

Are you interested in public policy and politics? Are you interested in representing your profession in the political process without committing a significant amount of your time for yet another obligation? If so, the Iowa Medical Political Action Committee (IMPAC) wants to hear from you. IMPAC is seeking to fill three vacancies on its Board of Directors. IMPAC is the largest, statewide political action committee in Iowa, representing only the interests of the medical community. The IMPAC Board of Directors typically meets once each fall for two-three hours. Their duties include the following:

  • Allocating and Approving Contributions to Legislative Candidates
  • Guiding Staff Fundraising Efforts
  • Developing Strategies to Raise the Political Profile for Issues of Importance to Physicians
  • Interviewing Candidates for the U.S. House, U.S. Senate, and Governor
  • Allocating and Approving Contributions to Gubernatorial Candidates
  • Approving Recommendations to AMPAC for Contributions to Federal Candidates
IMPAC is looking for physicians to filling the following vacancies:
  • Secretary/Treasurer, At Large
  • District Director, First Congressional District
  • District Director, Second Congressional District

To qualify to serve on the IMPAC Board of Directors, physicians must simply be a current member of IMPAC or become a member of IMPAC prior to their appointment. Candidates for District Director positions must reside in that Congressional District. For more information on this opportunity and to get involved, please contact Dennis Tibben with the IMS Center for Physician Advocacy.
