PAC Programs

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.

Permission Agreements
Federal political involvement is such a sensitive issue that the Federal Election Commission (FEC) long ago established a requirement that institutions “opt-in” to political action before being presented with actual information related to the Federal PAC. Signing the permission agreement doesn't obligate you to participate; it only allows us to send information about our activities related to the Federal PAC. There are currently no laws restricting the State PAC or fundraisers for candidates this is only for information regarding the CA/NV Federal PAC.

Please help us keep you informed by signing the permission agreement today!
