WSMA dues include a $25 contribution for the Washington Medical Political Action Committee (WAMPAC) or WSMA Foundation for Health Care Improvement, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation which supports improvements in the quality and delivery of health care services for all Washingtonians. When paying your dues, please select WAMPAC or WSMA Foundation to indicate where you'd like your contribution directed.
