The Maine Osteopathic Political Action Committee (MOPAC) advocates to elect and re-elect pro-physician candidates through direct contributions, voter education and targeted political activism. As a physician, your time and resources are limited. MOPAC is the best resource for you to learn who supports the osteopathic profession and how you can help elect candidates that represent you and your patients!

¨What is MOPAC? The Maine Osteopathic Political Action Committee (MOPAC) is the sole political action committee representing osteopathic physicians on the state level. It was established to be the voice of the osteopathic profession in campaigns and elections. Governed by a committee made up of osteopathic physicians, MOPAC is constantly working to increase our effectiveness in elections and strengthen the impact of the physician community. MOPAC’s primary goal is to elect and re-elect pro-physician candidates. We accomplish this through MOPAC-supported candidates, providing voter information on elections, issues, and candidates, and the political activism of our members. We also use MOPAC as a resource to advocate on key issues impacting healthcare.

¨How are we funded? MOPAC’s political activities are funded by the voluntary contributions of MOA members above and beyond their membership dues. These contributions make it possible for MOPAC and the osteopathic profession to have significant impact in elections. Contributions at every level are vital to MOPAC’s success. Even the smallest contribution adds to the growing army of osteopathic physicians standing up for our profession. Members of MOPAC are instrumental to ensuring we have both the funds and the people to be effective in the political arena.
