Get Out The Vote
Elections are critical. ACA uses all of the tools at its disposal to give members a stronger voice in the legislative process. Helping by providing resources to help them make educated decisions. Winning victories for business must still be done the hard way – vote by vote.
Each year, Americans get the opportunity to vote for the men and women who represent us in government. Whether local, state or federal, every election is important and can make a big impact on our industries.
Frequently Asked Questions
ACPAC helps raise ACA’s profile on Capitol Hill and allows us to build connections with candidates who recognize the role the collection industry plays for the financial services ecosystem. It provides financial assistance to political candidates who support a sound pro-business philosophy and responsible positions on issues of concern to the ARM industry. ACPAC is bipartisan, contributing to both Democratic and Republican candidates in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. The PAC does not contribute to candidates in connection with U.S. presidential elections.
Under Federal Election Commission regulations, ACPAC must receive prior approval before soliciting political contributions from ACA International members. This permission is granted by the chief executive officer or certified representative to ACA from member companies. By signing the APAC Prior Approval Form, the CEO or other Senior Executive (e.g. President, etc.) designates ACPAC as the sole political action committee authorized to solicit their employees. A company may grant prior approval for up to five (5) years at a time and may withdraw its authorization at any time.
ACPAC is governed by and in full compliance with all Federal Election Commission laws and regulations.
ACPAC is overseen by a committee of top executives from small and large agencies in the ARM industry representing ACA’s diverse membership across the country.
