Political Action Committees (PACs) are a group of like-minded individuals who pool their resources to achieve a common goal. NECAPAC uses funds to elect and support Members of Congress whose political philosophy or position within the legislature are in support of NECA’s legislative objectives. A secondary objective is to use candidate selection and fund disbursement procedures in a manner that maximizes the interaction of NECA chapters and members with their national legislators. When critical votes or issues arise lawmakers will vote their convictions. NECAPAC exists to help educate and assist candidates on the issues impacting us today.
