LifeSpan is well known for its ability to effectively advocate on behalf of quality senior care organizations across the spectrum of care. One tool that LifeSpan effectively utilizes in advocating for its members is a political action committee, or PAC, which is a type of organization that pools campaign contributions from members and donates those funds to campaign for or against candidates, ballot initiatives, or legislation. The LifeSpan PAC is dedicated to supporting Maryland legislators who fight to protect both the interests of seniors and the providers who support those seniors.
2018 is an election year in Maryland and could result in the turnover of many of our current elected officials in Annapolis. It is more important now than ever to support legislators who have the interests of seniors, and those who care for them, as a priority.
We invite you to help by supporting LifeSpan's Political Action Committee, either through your contributions or by serving on our PAC advisory committee. Contributions may be sent to:LifeSpan Network PAC
7090 Samuel Morse Dr. Suite 400
Columbia, MD 21046

We stand for you. We stand with you.
