Political Action Program
The Ohio Health Care Association Political Action Committee (OHCA-PAC)
was formed to provide long-term care professionals an opportunity to
have a strong voice in the legislative arena. PAC funds are distributed
to political candidates in the form of contributions, and are allocated
based on an individual's record on long term care issues.
By making contributions through the OHCA-PAC, members acknowledge
support for the positions expressed by the Ohio Health Care
Association/Ohio Centers for Assisted Living, and join with other
concerned, active members in presenting a unified voice.
Donations from OHCA's Political Action Committee to candidates who
support the Association's goals and the long-term care mission are of
vital importance to legislators as they pursue reelection or election.
OHCA-PAC's contributions indicate support for a legislator's interest
Today, more than ever before, the OHCA-PAC becomes crucial in moving key
initiatives forward in the legislature. Why is this? Term limits has
created a situation whereby new faces appear every eight years. A strong
PAC will give our industry access to new legislators who need to learn
more about the crucial issues facing Ohio providers.
There are several ways to make sure your voice is heard and that you are
represented in the legislative arena, including running for office and
speaking personally with your elected officials. But you can't be
familiar with every issue; you also have a business to run.
This is where the OHCA Political Action Committee comes into play.
Through OHCA-PAC, you can help elect officials who understand the needs
of long term care professionals, and provide OHCA/OCAL with the access
necessary to represent your issues before the legislature.
All contributions to OHCA-PAC are recognized and used to the best
advantage. By pooling contributions, OHCA/OCAL members are able to
achieve a greater voice in addressing issues of interest to their
The OHCA Political Action Committee was established as an unincorporated
committee of persons employed or active in the long-term health care
field and other individuals with similar interests. The Committee is not
affiliated with any political party.
Membership in the Committee is open to all persons employed or active in
the long-term care field making annual contributions to the Committee.
The OHCA-PAC is governed by a 20-member Board of Trustees appointed by
the Chairman and District Chairmen of the Ohio Health Care Association.
Trustees represent geographic areas and political districts in Ohio.
What are my Benefits?
Benefits of participating in the OHCA Political Action Committee come in
the form of ensuring that your business is adequately represented when
long-term care issues are addressed by the government. Without a
consistent, concerted voice, your needs may not be heard. OHCA-PAC helps
provide access to a fair hearing of the issues.
Other benefits to you are intangible. Participating in OHCA-PAC provides
members with the ability to become actively involved in the legislative
and political action process. Through a greater understanding of the
issues, you can become more comfortable in initiating person to person
contact with your elected officials, and you can begin to build a
satisfying relationship with your District's Senator and Representative.
By making contributions through the OHCA-PAC, members support the
positions expressed by the Ohio Health Care Association/Ohio Centers for
Assisted Living, and help make those positions known to elected leaders
in Ohio's Senate and House of Representatives.
Besides the significant return you could receive from your investment,
you can rest assured in knowing you are making a difference on key
issues facing long-term care providers today.
All contributions are welcome and appreciated, and all OHCA-PAC contributors are recognized.
