TEXPAC BOARD GROWS ITSELF, GETS APP
To boost grassroots involvement in TMA’s political activities, the TEXPAC Board of Directors voted to double its size and give more slots to young physicians, medical students, and TMA Alliance members. The TEXPAC board sets policy for the PAC and determines which candidates will receive medicine’s endorsements. The move is part of a yearlong effort to grow the PAC and enhance its influence in Texas politics. TEXPAC also unveiled a new mobile app, an exclusive, private social network that allows TEXPAC members to connect with each other and stay engaged with the Texas Legislature and U.S. Congress. The app, for TEXPAC members only, can be downloaded from the Apple App Store now. It will be available on Google Play for Android users later this week. The TMA Board of Trustees also voted to appropriate funds for a complete redesign of the TEXPAC website by the end of the year.
