IAND PAC – What is it and Why now?
The Indiana Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics created a political action committee (PAC) several years ago and was designed to support elected officials that promote a healthy Indiana. Indiana’s Political Action Committee has had a recent name change to Indiana Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics PAC and continues to work diligently on behalf of nutrition initiatives supported by the Indiana Academy. IAND PAC supports candidates from all parties that share our goals. A PAC is a an organization that is formed with the purpose of campaigning for or against political candidates. IAND’s PAC is registered with the State of Indiana and is subject to the rules and regulations of the State of Indiana.
Your Indiana Academy leaders recognize that in order for Indiana Dietitians to gain more visibility and prominence we need to develop greater name recognition. Currently the most accepted and legal method of raising awareness with political candidates is to host fundraisers for candidates and to donate funds to their campaigns.
Donating to the IAND PAC is simple. Please consider donating today using this link to the IAND PAC donation page. Donations over $100 will require the individual’s name to be submitted to the State of Indiana Election Commission.
Your contributions are needed to increase IAND’s visibility and messaging to our elected officials. Please join our efforts and become active in promoting our profession and services!
