Campaigns are more important than ever—and so is your support for WAMPAC.


WAMPAC (Washington Medical Political Action Committee) is the nonpartisan political campaign arm of the WSMA, established to help identify and support candidates for political office whose priorities align with the house of medicine. In recent years, more than 95 percent of the candidates we've supported have won their campaigns, and the relationships we built on the campaign trail have helped translate to the kind of policy victories that make a difference for physicians and patients.

As a physician or health care leader who cares about advocacy, would you contribute today?

The WAMPAC Legislator Report Card

One of the many ways WAMPAC brings value to WSMA members is by providing details on legislators' record on issues important to you and your patients. Published during general and midterm election years, the WAMPAC Legislator Report Card details how state legislators voted on WSMA's priority bills and is included as part of the yearly WSMA Legislative Report mailed to all members at the conclusion of the state legislative session. Visit the WAMPAC Legislator Report Card page (members-only; sign-in required) to view and download the latest report card.
