Iowa Dental Political Action Committee (IDPAC)

The Iowa Dental Political Action Committee (IDPAC) is a grassroots network of dentists committed to educating their local elected and appointed state policy makers on issues affecting dentistry. It is a voluntary, nonprofit, unincorporated committee of individual dentists and others and is not affiliated with any political party. The Committee is an independent, autonomous organization and is not a branch or subsidiary of any national or other political action committee.

The purposes of the Committee are:
  1. To promote and strive for the improvement of government by encouraging dentists and others to take a more active and effective role in government affairs.
  2. To encourage dentists and others to understand the nature and actions of their government, as to important political issues, and as to the records of office-holders and candidates for elective office.
  3. To assist dentists and others in organizing themselves for more effective political action and in carrying out their civic responsibilities.
Membership is open to any dentist, their spouse, members of their immediate family, and others, subject to payment of an annual contribution to the Committee. Categories of membership and contributions are established by the Board of Directors. The Board consists of not more than 20 members who serve staggered three-year terms of office. There is an annual meeting held at a date and time selected by the chair, and special meetings may be called.
