ACCP Report - July 2019

Did You Know? ACCP-PAC Mid-Year Update


By law, ACCP-PAC files quarterly reports with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) declaring its income and expenditures for that period. Similarly, ACCP’s registered lobbyists, to maintain their legal status, must report any political contributions to the Clerk of the Senate, which are then made available as part of the public record.

Because political contributions are recognized as part of a constitutionally protected freedom of speech, the FEC’s goal is to ensure appropriate accountability and transparency related to campaign finance. As part of this process, ACCP-PAC’s financial records are available to the public in compliance with FEC law, and decisions related to candidate contributions are made by the College’s PAC Governing Council, which consists of ACCP members and leaders.

Consistent with ACCP’s core values, ACCP-PAC supports candidates and elected officials who are committed to a care delivery system in which clinical pharmacists, working as fully integrated members of the patient care team, are responsible for significant portions of the medication management work and for helping to achieve clinical goals for patients’ medication use.

Looking ahead to the 2020 presidential elections, thanks to the support of ACCP members, ACCP-PAC has over $60,000 cash on hand to support elected officials and candidates – from both political parties – running for federal office.

All ACCP members are asked to contribute to the ACCP-PAC. CLICK HERE to support your PAC today!
