Political Action Committee

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 Board Chairman. The board members serve a three-year term and represent each of the U.S. membership regions. The ABC PAC Board of Trustees work with the Regional Vice Chairs and Chapter leadership across the country to promote political involvement and assist in raising ABC PAC funds. Trustees also approve all disbursements to candidates based on well-established guidelines such as voting records of incumbents. ABC 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.
