Interventional cardiologists wanting to deliver the best possible care for their patients are confronted with ever-increasing barriers to providing that care.  

SCAI's Government Relations Committee is the voice that educates the specialty, its patients, legislators, and government agencies about the policies and positions that affect all aspects of interventional cardiology. 

SCAI's Political Action Committee (PAC) is responsible for ensuring that that voice is heard; our issues get noticed; and that we have access to the legislators needed to effectively advocate for the specialty.

Knowing that our membership understands the importance of financial support for SCAI PAC, we are launching a fundraising campaign to help us get our message directly to candidates for the U.S. House and Senate. Our goal is to raise $100,000 and we need your contribution. 

Our success is based on recognizing our generous contributors. Federal law allows annual contributions of up to $5,000 to be accepted by a political action committee. In addition to being recognized by your peers, contributors to SCAI PAC receive the following important benefits.   

  • Contributions of $3,000 or more receive the SCAI PAC Tool Kit (see below) plus a Cameo™ appearance with one of your favorite celebrities (*limits apply) 
  • Contributions of $1,000 or more receive the SCAI PAC Tool Kit. The Tool Kit includes:  
    • SCAI PAC monthly newsletter with the latest political news  
    • Invitations to SCAI PAC meetings with candidates 
    • Access to member-only benefits at the annual meeting
    • A specially designed SCAI PAC pin 
  • Contributions of $500-$1,000 receive: 
    • SCAI PAC newsletter
    • A specially designed SCAI PAC pin 
  • Contributions of $200-$499 receive the SCAI PAC newsletter   

If you agree that advocacy is one of the great benefits of being a member of SCAI, contributing to SCAI PAC is the best way to super-charge your member value.
