Dan Bennett, MD
On March 15, the WISMedPAC board met and voted on new officers. The elected officers are Chair Dan Bennett, MD, Vice Chair John Hartman, MD, and Treasurer/Secretary Paul Wertsch, MD. After many years of serving as Chair, Dr. Hartman stepped down to Vice Chair to allow for a change of leadership.
"Dr. Hartman has served Wisconsin physicians admirably in multiple leadership roles over many years, including his long service as chair of WISMedPAC. His leadership helped develop a truly nonpartisan PAC focused on the needs of Wisconsin patients and physicians. I'm grateful that I will continue to learn from him as he stays on our board as Vice Chair," says Dr. Bennett.
He continued, "We have faced challenges with fundraising in large part due to the pandemic's impact on our ability to meet in person, but the Society has maintained an active and effective voice in Madison thanks to our member volunteers and extraordinary work of our talented advocacy staff. Our PAC is poised to grow and help us build even stronger relationships with state legislators so that physicians' voices have even more impact inside our State Capitol."
