Alabama Retail has two political action committees. Our association is 4,200 members strong, so our VOICE and our VOTE makes a difference when ballots are counted.
Alabama Retail PAC is a state political action committee supported entirely by voluntary contributions of Alabama Retail Association members and their companies.
It is extremely important to Alabama’s retail climate that we elect “retail friendly” legislators and fair judges.
Alabama Retail Association PAC is the federal political action committee of the Alabama Retail Association. It is registered with the Federal Election Commission as a 501 (c) 6 PAC and operates within the strict conformity of federal election campaign laws.
The purpose of Alabama Retail Association PAC is to help elect pro-business candidates to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives who will work to enact policies and legislation to better America’s retail climate.
All executive and administrative personnel of Alabama Retail’s member companies may contribute to Alabama Retail Association PAC. Contributing to Retail Association PAC is a voluntary decision. Only individual, personal contributions are acceptable.
Contributions are not deductable for federal income tax purposes. Contributions are voluntary and used for political purposes. The association will not favor or disfavor anyone because of the amount of their contribution, or their decision not to contribute. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal. Federal law requires Alabama Retail Association PAC to request and report the name, address, occupation and employer for each person whose contributions exceed $200 or more in a calendar year.
Our success at the polls is possible only with the financial and grassroots support of retailers throughout the state. Thanks to everyone willing to get out the vote and make the VOICE of retailing heard!
