Have you supported the Hygienists of Indiana Political Action Committee?


What is HI-PAC?

Its purpose is to encourage dental hygienists and other interested persons to inform legislators of current dental hygiene issues. HI-PAC is a voluntary, non-profit committee, which supports the goals of IDHA, but operates independently and autonomously. HI-PAC is not affiliated with any one political party but supports individual candidates who have demonstrated an interest in excellence in dental hygiene. HI-PAC provides support to those candidates and works to encourage other candidates to hear the voice of the dental hygiene profession.

 

What does HI-PAC do?

Decision making--Legislation and government regulations are affecting the scope and future of the practice of dental hygiene. Important decisions are made concerning health care delivery and dental hygiene practice. We must be an active part of that process.

 

Voting Isn’t Enough: Lobbying Isn’t Enough--The synergy of hundreds of dental hygienists working together is what it takes for our collective voice to be heard when public officials are debating the future of dental hygiene.

 

Provides Information--Information about current legislative issues may be obtained from your component Trustee. HI-PAC will equip you with the knowledge necessary to make decisions that will count- for your patients, your profession, and you.

 

Remains Active--We will encourage members to vote for the candidates who support dental hygiene issues as well as donate money to those candidate’s campaigns.

 

How Do I Fit In?

As dental hygienists, it is our responsibility to educate legislators regarding the dental hygiene standard of care. We need to defend the profession we have chosen and try to enhance it by expanding our scope of practice. You can help by becoming a member of HI-PAC and supporting our legislative efforts. Become a member of HI-PAC and support our legislative efforts. We want YOU to help shape the future of dental hygiene.
