ASA'S Political Action Committee (PAC)

What is a PAC?

Political Action Committees (PACs) are the mechanisms through which professional and trade associations, corporations, and labor unions are permitted by federal law to make campaign contributions to candidates for Congress and the presidency. While individuals can contribute directly to federal candidates, it was believed that membership organizations, unions, and corporations needed a way to express their institutional support for or against candidates for federal office. PACs, which are regulated by the Federal Election Commission, are the vehicles for such contributions.
