Funded solely by ACEP members, the National Emergency Medicine Political Action Committee (NEMPAC) advances the specialty of emergency medicine in Washington, D.C., and improves the practice environment for emergency physicians and patient care delivery. For the 2018 election cycle, NEMPAC is on target to raise nearly $2.3 million from ACEP member supporters.
ACEP18 is your opportunity to learn more about NEMPAC’s year-round activities. What are the most important items on the legislative agenda? What has NEMPAC been doing in the heated health care debate? NEMPAC leaders and staff will be on hand to answer your questions.
In honor of ACEP’s 50th anniversary, NEMPAC will host several special events during ACEP18 to encourage additional support, and to recognize and thank our most committed and generous donors.
NEMPAC Council Challenge
Saturday, Sept. 29–Sunday, Sept. 30,
