Fellow NASS Member,
Part of what I enjoy most about membership in our society is its steadfastness
and resolve in fighting the good fight. There is no doubt we have faced tough
challenges over the years but the NASS commitment to protecting our patients,
practices and advancing research has never waived. Perhaps nowhere is this
more evident than in the halls of Congress.
As the primary voice for spine specialists on Capitol Hill, NASS helps frame the debate in Washington
by sponsoring a political action committee, SpinePAC. The purpose of SpinePAC is to work within the
federal election process by supporting candidates who are champions of the NASS agenda.
Our united efforts have made a dramatic impact on the political landscape over the past several years
but the simple fact remains, we need to do more. With new legislative and regulatory policies surfacing every day in Washington, NASS needs members like you to join the fight.
I hope you will also consider supporting our organization’s political advocacy efforts and donating to
SpinePAC. It is only with your help that we can ensure the voice of the physician and patient communities is heard. YOU certainly have a choice, but sitting on the sidelines should NOT be one them!
After all, what happens in Washington impacts us all.

P.S. If every eligible NASS member gave $100/year with their dues, we would be $1.2 million,

NASS members who are U.S. citizens and pay dues or have are voting privileges may contribute to SpinePAC, as may NASS candidate members. All contributions must be
drawn on personal accounts. Contributions to SpinePAC are used for political purposes, contributions are voluntary, and you may choose whether and how much to give without
concern of favor, disadvantage or reprisal by the National Association of Spine Specialists or SpinePAC. SpinePAC may not accept corporate contributions or contributions from
foreign nationals, and you may not be reimbursed for your contribution. If you send a payment in response to this solicitation drawn on your corporate practice account (check
or credit card), the payment will be deposited to a NASS6 administrative account and used for permitted political purposes by NASS6 in accordance with Federal Election
Commission regulations. Contributions are not tax deductible for federal tax purposes. Federal law requires SpinePAC to make its best effort to report to the Federal Election
Commission the name, address, occupation and name of employer for each individual whose contributions exceed $200 in a calendar year.
