As an association member, you may wonder why you need to be prior approved before the association's PAC (Political Action Committee) can solicit donations from you. The answer lies in the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) and related laws that govern the activities of political action committees.
Under FECA, association PACs must obtain prior approval from their sponsoring organization before soliciting contributions from individuals, corporations, or other organizations. This approval helps to ensure that the PAC's fundraising activities are consistent with the goals and values of the association, and that they are conducted in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
