Are you a member of MMPAC?

MSMA's Director of Governmental Relations
Join the hundreds of your physician peers who belong to MMPAC. Through your grassroots efforts, contributions to candidates, and support of the Missouri Medical Political Action Committee, members like you keyed political changes that resulted in a number of important legislative victories for your profession and your patients this past legislative session.
Your hard work showed politicians that physicians really are concerned about the actions of their lawmakers, and your contributions helped elect many friends of medicine to office in Jefferson City. Also, your support of the MMPAC allows it pool members’ contributions so that organized medicine could match the other large PACs in key campaigns. This was recognized and praised by our political friends.
