American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

American College of Surgeons Professional Association

In 2001, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Board of Governors voted unanimously to establish a new, more flexible 501c(6) affiliated corporation, the American College of Surgeons Professional Association (ACSPA), to offer a broader range of activities and services benefiting surgeons and patients, including an expanded legislative advocacy program featuring a political action committee (PAC). The formation of the 501c(6) ensures that the College can continue to maintain the standard-setting educational activities that remain at the core of its mission. Additional information and resources can be found by visiting SurgeonsVoice.org and SurgeonsPAC.org.
