Political Action Committee
The purpose of ABC’s Political Action Committee (PAC) is to work within the federal election process to further the goals of the association through direct involvement in supporting and opposing candidates for The United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. This is accomplished through educating our members on the importance of political activism and through financial support of merit shop candidates.
ABC PAC is governed by fifteen board members who are appointed by the ABC Chair. The board members serve a three year term and are chosen by region. The PAC Board of Trustees work with the Regional Vice Chairs and chapter leadership to promote political involvement and assist in raising PAC funds. Members of this committee also approve all donations to candidates based on well-established guidelines such as voting records of incumbents. The PAC Trustee will also work with one non-voting Regional PAC Chair in each region who will assist with specific chapter programs and fundraising events.
It is imperative that ABC contractors work together to counteract the strong and united forces of groups who oppose the merit shop. If the merit shop does not take an equally aggressive stand in supporting candidates that will support our philosophy, it cannot triumph. ABC’s PAC is your voice in elective politics. PAC members’ donations are combined with others to jointly support candidates. This provides a unified and powerful voice for the merit agenda. It is also an opportunity to participate in one of the largest pro-business PACs in the nation.
