What is CAWA's PAC and Why Do We Have One?
The Association created a Political Action Committee (PAC). A PAC allows CAWA to: (1) sponsor and oppose legislative bills to promote and protect its members and the industry it serves, and (2) award political contributions to increase the visibility and understanding of the Association and its members' issues. In short, a PAC allows an individual or business to make a greater impact in the public policy arena than if they acted alone. The PAC also educates members of the legislatures on issues and situations that matter most to the Association and its membership. Absent these efforts, elected officials might not realize the importance of our industry to their constituency or how issues they are deciding might impact both auto care businesses and their customers, the motoring public. Thus, the CAWA PAC helps strengthen our Association's voice by supporting key decision-makers who truly understand our industry and the work we do.
The political climate is constantly changing and it is important that we have resources to help look out for the best interests of our industry and member companies. Every member company and individuals within those companies has the opportunity to contribute to the PAC in support of industry and business issues.
