Political action committees (PACs) sponsored by corporate-based trade associations, like AGC PAC, are required by federal law to obtain a corporate member company’s approval before asking eligible individuals to join or informing them about PAC-related activities.
This may seem unusual given that AGC PAC is funded by personal contributions, but it is the law.
A corporate member company may grant prior authorization by having an authorized representative of the company complete the AGC PAC Prior Authorization Form. Granting AGC PAC prior authorization does not obligate anyone in a company to make a financial commitment nor does it preclude employees of the company from contributing to local, state, ideological or national member PACs. It simply gives eligible employees the opportunity to learn more about AGC PAC and to make a choice whether or not to provide their support.
