The America’s Electric Cooperatives PAC is the federal Political Action Committee (PAC) of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA). America’s Electric Cooperatives PAC raises personal, voluntary contributions from NRECA’s eligible membership. Federal law prohibits soliciting contributions from individuals other than NRECA and member-systems’ eligible employees, boards of directors, consumer-owners, and the families of such individuals. Contributions to America’s Electric Cooperatives PAC are deductible (Use AR 1800 Form) from state income tax. In other words, eligible cooperative employees can join and support the organization at no out-of-pocket expense.
Through America’s Electric Cooperatives PAC, cooperatives ensure that they are playing a vital part in the political process. Involvement in the political process is the only way electric cooperatives can make sure their voices are heard.
America’s Electric Cooperatives PAC’s strength comes from you and your commitment to cooperative rural electrification. It is each individual’s membership that helps us stand together and allows America’s Electric Cooperatives PAC to remain strong and promote the legislative objectives of the rural electric program.
