Political Action, WSMA Commitment to
The WSMA is committed to the maintenance of a strong, active presence in the governmental and legislative arenas. The WSMA is committed to a legislative agenda advocating the medical profession as one in which the priority is patient health and safety. The WSMA encourages physicians and auxilians to support WAMPAC and participate in the entire political process.
The WSMA further encourages specialty society representatives – either through the already established Interspecialty Council or other mechanisms that may be developed – to support a united medical front on political and legislative issues. (GA Rpt G, '88) (Reaffirmed A-17)
