The Oklahoma Physician Assistant Political Action Committee is the political
branch of the OAPA and is involved in a number of activities which
support the OAPA and our profession in this state. We sponsor the PA
Half-Day at the Capitol where members of the OAPA visit with our
legislators to educate them about our profession and any issues that may
be pending at the Capitol. Many members invite their legislators to
lunch or dinner to answer his/her questions about our profession. We
also collect and maintain funds used to support election or re-election
campaigns of those legislators friendly to our profession and any other
political activities in which the OAPA is involved.
order to accomplish the above goals, we need adequate funds. OAPA
members may send one-time donations to PAPAC at any time of the
year. Members may also make ten-month pledges at the state convention
each year with a wide variety of payment options available. We have
different levels of giving which are recognized at the convention each
year. Your generosity and support are appreciated.
all work together, we can continue to enjoy the respect and broad scope
of practice that we enjoy today as Oklahoma PA’s, and hopefully broaden
that scope of practice in the future. Thank you for your help in the
past and I look forward to your help in the future. If you have
questions or need further information related to our activities or
donations, please contact the OAPA office at 405-236-3161.
