An essential element to the success of any national trade association’s advocacy efforts is the political arm of the association. ACPAC’s Administrative Fund is supported by corporate transactions. It provides discretionary funds to support the operating expenses of ACPAC such as grassroots education, advocacy, fundraising expenses and other administrative costs. Your corporate contribution is one way that your company may support its national trade association, and it truly represents an investment in this industry that pays back many dividends. Thanks to ACA members from coast to coast for their financial support.
Donate to legislative advocacy efforts. Join our effort to impact the national dialogue and broaden our political profile by engaging in issue and candidate advocacy.
A trade association may accept unlimited transactions from its corporate members to defray any administrative or fundraising costs associated with its PAC.
One of ACA’s most important annual events is the Washington Insights “Fly-In” held in our nation’s Capitol. Each Spring, staff is extremely proud to welcome the members of ACA International into the heart of Washington D.C. During this event, ACA members attend meetings on Capitol Hill with key members of Congress.
This meeting facilitates developing a deeper relationship with your representatives and drives home how policy decisions in Washington, D.C. affect your business and your ability to provide employment in your communities. We need you to educate Members of Congress on policies that will help those working in the accounts receivable management industry, so it can grow and thrive and play a vital role in ensuring a healthy and functioning U.S. economy. Travel to Washington to participate in event at the center of the action and hear the latest news from regulators and key lawmakers. The political winds are blowing, and we need you to be a part of our voice for the industry on Capitol Hill.
One of the highlights during the ACA International Convention & Expo is the annual ACPAC special event held at exciting venues in the host city. This year, the ACPAC special event was held at the USS Midway Museum in San Diego, CA. ACPAC’s former Chairman, David Williams of Williams and Fudge emceed the evening with Harry Strausser playing the auctioneer for a “Destination Vacation” auction held in support of ACPAC’s Administrative Fund. Fun had by all!
