The purpose of TOMSPAC shall be to promote the interests of the Texas Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and to raise funds to make campaign contributions to those seeking election or re-election to political offices, without regard to party affiliation, who are believed to be deserving of such support. Such funds may also be used to support or to oppose the passage of any measure submitted in an election to the people, and to make contributions for other worthwhile political purposes and activities. In an effort to assure state-wide representation on the TOMSPAC Committee, the Board of Directors of the Texas Society of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons has elected the following to serve the Society as members of the TOMSPAC Board of Directors:
Additionally, the general membership approved a mandatory advocacy fee for the Active/Provisional Membership in the amount of $200.00.

We encourage you to speak with any of the members of the TOMSPAC Committee to obtain additional information.
