SCAPTA-PAC is the sole fundraising body that works to influence state legislators to champion PT legislative interests in South Carolina. The PAC also works to encourage input and participation by its members in the political process.
SCAPTA-PAC should not be confused with APTA's PT-PAC, the national political action committee that is devoted to championing PT issues at the federal level with members of the U.S. Congress. Donations to SCAPTA-PAC go toward promoting the PT profession here in the Palmetto state!
Goal: to raise $10,000.00 in 2013
