The CACS has formed two Political Action Committees (PAC). A PAC is an organization that pools contributions from members and donates those funds to candidates or campaigns, ballot initiatives, and legislation.

The CA Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons Small Contributor PAC – donations of $200 from any one person or entity per year. This is a good option for those who want to help in a modest way. The “reward” for those organizations that work hard to raise lots of small contributions from many donors is the ability to contribute double the ordinary limits to selected candidates or officeholders.

The CA Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons PAC – donations of $500, $1,000, $2,500, $5,000, $6,000 and $10,000 or higher.

These two new entities enable the CACS to promote our agendas, and educate our legislators and the public about our educations, training, expertise, experience and commitment to the welfare of our patients.
