Envelope dollarsWe need your help ASAP to reach the HCAW Political Action Committee Goal of $6,000 for the 2014 Elections!!

We are half-way to our goal and the HCAW PAC needs an additional $3,000 for this political cycle to be effective. We donate on a bi-partisan basis to key members of the House and Senate Leadership and members of the Health Care and Appropriations Committees.

All members of the House of Representatives are up for election and half of the state Senate. This year the balance of power in the Senate is up for grabs and it’s a heated election cycle. The primary election is on August 5, 2014 and the general election is November 4th, 2014.

This is a strategic investment that influences the fate of your industry!! We need your financial support for our legislative advocacy to be successful and the time to begin donating for the PAC is now.

If 60 members of HCAW donate $50.00 each we will meet our goal for this year!!!
