How does IAAPA PAC work?
IAAPA PAC is a way for IAAPA U.S. members and staff to join together and donate to the campaigns of candidates who share an interest in the attractions industry. Federal law prohibits corporations or associations from donating to political campaigns; however, members, shareholders, and employees of these organizations can donate up to $5,000 annually to a separate fund called a Political Action Committee or PAC.
There are many ways IAAPA members can support the PAC, either through direct contribution, payroll deduction programs, or attending PAC fundraising events. The first step is to fill out a prior approval form, which enables us to send you information about PAC opportunities and events.
How are IAAPA PAC contributions to candidates determined?
IAAPA PAC is governed by the North American Government Relations Subcommittee. The subcommittee convenes to determine the best opportunities for IAAPA PAC engagement and support. The subcommittee is comprised of every facet of the attractions industry.
