Who Will Reign as the Most Engaged Advocates at the Grassroots Leadership and Legislative Conference?
By Wendy Perez Young, Manager, Political Action Committee & Compliance
This Grassroots the competition is on between the Fellows, architects, and the emerging professionals! ArchiPAC will be tracking contributions from each membership constituency during the course of the Conference. The constituency with the highest percentage of registrant participation will be declared the Most Engaged Advocates at the 2013 Grassroots.
Getting involved is simple. You can contribute online prior to Grassroots or make an investment at the ArchiPAC Lounge. Whether you decide to give:
• a dime a day ($36.50)
• a cup of coffee a week ($2 a week)
• a dollar a day ($365)
…or more. Your investment will strengthen the architects’ collective voice on Capitol Hill.
So don’t forget to stop by the ArchiPAC lounge with your personal check or credit card to invest in our profession and to represent your constituency at the Grassroots Conference. Members that give $10 or more will receive a special 2013 ArchiPAC lapel pin designating their club level.
ArchiPAC is the only political action committee of the American Institute of Architects. Every dollar raised goes toward supporting the campaigns of federal candidates who will consider the AIA’s viewpoint before casting a vote. Last year, through the support of 1,502 members, ArchiPAC raised $157,000. ArchiPAC has a 2013 goal of raising $201,300. Last election ArchiPAC supported 74 candidates for federal office. Out of those ArchiPAC supported, 89 percent won. For a complete list of candidates ArchiPAC supported during the 2012 Election please visit https://archipac.org/candidate-support.
