The most important area for CCACC advocacy is the Connecticut Legislature. The CCACC has formed a PAC to maximize our legislative presence. By gathering the support of many Cardiologists into one source, the CCPAC creates a collective source that politicians recognize and respect. The PAC allows CCACC leadership to attend legislative meetings and fund-raisers, building bi-partisan relationships and being a vocal presence at the legislature.
Please join your colleagues in support of cardiology in Connecticut. Your contribution to the CCPAC must be a personal contribution. Checks should be written to CCPAC and mailed to:
