NLA Political Action CommitteeWhat is a Political Action Committee (PAC)?
A PAC is a separate segregated fund established and maintained by an organization that pools campaign contributions from members and donates those funds to campaigns for or against candidates, ballot initiatives, or legislation.
Why does the NLA have a PAC?
Political Action Committees make it possible to connect donors with candidates to educate them on issues affecting the NLA, build relationships with candidates, and increase our member's understanding of the political process. In addition, the NLA PAC affords members the opportunity to support federal elections in a convenient and direct way.
The NLA has a PAC to raise funds and contribute to candidates who have committed to supporting the luxury ground transportation industry, understand our priorities, and will protect our interests. Raising PAC funds gives the NLA a significant voice in Washington and allows us to be heard on a federal level.
Who can contribute to the NLA PAC and is there a contribution limit?
Individuals of NLA’s corporate members including executive
and administrative personnel may donate to the NLA PAC. Participation is voluntary
and contributions are not tax-deductible. Contributions must be made by
personal check or personal credit card, not corporate funds. The maximum yearly
contribution is $5,000 per member.
Can the NLA PAC solicit all NLA members for PAC contributions?
No, NLA corporate members must give the NLA written
permission to request money for PAC contributions. Giving the NLA permission to
ask for contributions does not obligate that member to make contributions; it
just gives the NLA permission to request them. This permission expires
annually. You may pre-authorize up to five years of permission.
