ACEC/PAC Champions Committee



ACEC’s Political Action Committee (PAC) Champions, under the rules of the Federal Election Commission (FEC), oversee the recruitment of ACEC/PAC supporters in their state Member Organizations to support federal Congressional candidates. The PAC Champions are selected for annual terms with one serving as chairman. Champions approve the criteria for fund allocation and overall fundraising programs to meet their state’s annual fundraising PAC goal. ACEC/PAC works in conjunction with ACEC’s legislative program to elect and keep pro-business members of Congress in office that support the interests of the engineering industry and create an improved business environment for ACEC members.


2019-2020 GOALS:

  1. Sustain $1 million ACEC/PAC goal.
  2. Achieve effective participation of all MOs to reach their ACEC/PAC goals.
  3. Undertake additional coordinated efforts to gain participation from ACEC’s largest firms and largest states. Work closely with the state and PAC leadership in CA and TX to implement specific fundraising plans to help them achieve their 2018 ACEC/PAC goals.
  4. Contact all ACEC member firms which have not yet completed the necessary “prior approval” forms to do so; and solicit every eligible ACEC member firm which has given prior approval and encourage them to support ACEC/PAC giving by their employees.
  5. Increase Congressional Club ($500) membership from 276 to 285, Millennium Club ($1,000) membership from 245 to 250, Chairman’s Club ($2,500) membership from 61 to 65, and Capitol Club ($5,000) membership from 22 to 25.
  6. Grow ACEC’s Direct Giving programs in terms of both dollars contributed and total overall participation by ACEC members to those federal candidates on the PAC budget.
