The IHA PAC is the political action committee (PAC) of the Iowa Hospital Association (IHA). The committee was started in 1990 to promote and facilitate voluntary contributions from IHA members to support candidates for elective office.
Monies raised through the IHA PAC campaign are used to support candidates seeking election to state office. The IHA PAC is nonpartisan and supports members regardless of party affiliation. The IHA PAC seeks to support candidates with a demonstrated willingness to listen to the perspectives of Iowa hospitals and champion IHA’s public policy priorities to ensure access to quality health care for Iowans.
The IHA PAC also serves as a collecting agent on behalf of the American Hospital Association's federal PAC that supports the election of candidates for federal office.
Having a robust PAC enables IHA to fully engage on public policy issues to safeguard the interests of Iowa hospitals and sustain critical relationships with elected lawmakers.
A strong PAC ensures your voice is heard.
