What is PAC?
PAC stands for Political Action Committee. PACs are organized for the purpose of raising and spending money to elect and defeat candidates. Most PACs represent business, labor or ideological interests.
The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues have registered Political Action Committees. They raise contributions from credit union leaders and members, and contribute to candidates at the local, state and national level who support credit unions.
Why Is It So Important?
PACs have a tremendous impact on influencing the legislative body. It allows individuals and credit unions to pool their money to make a larger impact on those elected officials than what they could have done on their own.
