ASHA-PAC: Your Voice on Capitol Hill

ASHA PACASHA-PAC is the political action committee for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. A political action committee (PAC) is an organization representing a specific cause or interest that raises funds to support the political campaigns of key legislators.

ASHA-PAC provides financial support to candidate committees for the U.S. House and Senate that recognize the importance of speech-language pathology and audiology services and who demonstrate concern for the rights of all citizens to receive these services. Contributions are made to the ASHA-PAC by ASHA members and are entirely voluntary.

ASHA-PAC is registered with the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Under the oversight of the FEC, ASHA-PAC files regular reports detailing the financial activities of the PAC. ASHA-PAC complies with all federal laws and regulations governing its operations.

Support ASHA-PAC

Federal law prohibits associations from using member dues for political contributions. ASHA-PAC is funded through voluntary, individual contributions from ASHA members only. We cannot accept contributions from corporations, non-ASHA members, and non-U.S. citizens.
