SurgeonsPAC Launches New Activities at Clinical Congress 2019


As the countdown to Clinical Congress 2019 continues, the American College of Surgeons Professional Association Political Action Committee (ACSPA-SurgeonsPAC) will launch new activities to increase contributors, recognize existing VIP members, and raise awareness about the importance of electing the right candidates to Congress. Through a campaign titled Race to a New Congress, 2019 contributors are invited to recruit new SurgeonsPAC members or nominate a strong PAC advocate to be featured at the Clinical Congress PAC booth and in various College publications. The campaign will run through October 11, and participants will be entered to win either a grand prize or SurgeonsPAC-branded giveaways. Resident and Fellow Bingo also will be available to attendees who want to become more involved. Bingo cards will be available at the SurgeonsPAC booth located in the Moscone Center (South Lobby, Ground Level), and completed cards will be entered to win a $250 Amazon gift card.
