ABC's PAC is your voice in elective politics. ABC PAC members' contributions 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.
The purpose of ABC 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 Office of President, United States Senate and 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 National Chairman. The board members serve a three year term and represent each of the seven regions. The ABC PAC Board of Trustees work with the Regional Vice Chairs and chapter leadership to promote political involvement and assist in raising PAC funds. Trustees also approve all disbursements to candidates based on well-established guidelines such as voting records of incumbents.

Prior Authorization

Per Federal Election Commission (FEC) regulations, a corporate member company of ABC must first provide ABC PAC with prior authorization before any individual in its restricted class can contribute or be solicited.

Political action committees (PACs) of corporate trade associations like ABC (which has corporate members, not individual members) must first receive permission from a member company's ABC primary contact prior to accepting or soliciting a PAC contribution. Only an individual (or immediate family members) in the "restricted class" of an ABC member company whose company has given prior authorization is eligible to contribute to ABC PAC.

The "restricted class" of a member company is defined as "the company's executive and administrative personnel or their families." Executive and administrative personnel are paid on a salary and have policy-making, managerial, professional, or supervisory responsibilities.
