O-HY-PAC O-HY-PAC is the Ohio Dental Hygienists’ Political Action Committee. With O-HY-PAC we can continue to support and educate the elected decision-makers on issues of concern and interest to our profession. This process is a great way for all dental hygienists to get involved with the political process, with very little commitment. Remember we all have a stake in the success of our profession and want to see it continue to do well. What is a PAC? A PAC (Political Action Committee) is a popular term for a political committee organized for the purpose of raising and spending money to help elect candidates. A PAC’s money comes from voluntary contributions from individuals rather than association dues. Although commonly called PAC’s, federal election law refers to these accounts as “separate segregated funds” because money contributed to a PAC is kept in a bank account separate from the association’s operating funds. Further, these funds are only used to support political campaigns...not to pay for our lobbying activities or other association business. O-HY-PAC was created to identify candidates who support the efforts of ODHA and to support their campaign efforts. To continue to be an effective voice for the profession, it is critical to put a financial emphasis behind our positions.
