We are challenging all Academy members to assist in growing the Academy’s Political Action Committee and promoting the profession.
Double Shot Campaign (PAC a Punch!)
Don’t give up your daily or weekly coffee treat, we all need something to get us through the busy days, especially as summer winds down and vacations come to an end. But the end of summer also signifies that Congress is back in session, and we need you to help us PAC a punch by making a donation to the fund. You can make a difference by matching the amount you’d spend monthly at your local café or beanery; more coffee for you and more money for the PAC, it’s a double shot!

Top Ten Reasons to Give to the PAC
We have created new donor circles with special giving incentives for high donors. By increasing member contributions to the PAC, together we can achieve the Academy’s advocacy goals.
- If you’ve ever received a paycheck for being an audiologist.
- If you believe that you have a profession, not just a job.
- If you support action to achieve passage of the Medicare Audiologist Access and Services Act, as well as other legislative priorities.
- If you’re tired of other professions dictating what we can and can’t do.
- If you think your degree is worth being known as more than just a tech.
- If you want to send the message that our profession matters.
- If you want to be able to say “I gave already” when the PAC Advisory Board calls.
- If you have never given and think it’s important to maintain a presence on Capitol Hill.
- If you want to make a difference in your profession.
- Because in Washington you’re either at the table or you’re on the menu.
