Prior to and during the ACEP Council meeting, NEMPAC collected nearly $300,000 from Council members. That combined with thousands of donations this year from ACEP members across the country means NEMPAC is well on its way to exceeding the $1 million goal set by the ACEP Board of Directors in 2016. Along with more than $1 million collected from ACEP members last year, NEMPAC was able to contribute $1.8 million to 26 Senate candidates and 208 House races.
NEMPAC serves a vital role in advancing ACEP’s legislative agenda and in broadening ACEP’s visibility with Congress. NEMPAC’s growth has allowed us to impact more congressional races for candidates supportive of emergency medicine and ACEP and has expanded our influence on Capitol Hill.
