What is PRIDE PAC?

PRIDE PAC is the federal political action committeeset up by the Independent Electrical Contractors, Inc. PRIDE PAC is funded entirely through personal donations from IEC members. These contributions are grouped together for greater impact and given to Members of Congress, Congressional candidates and federal leadership PACs to support the electrical and systems industries and the merit shop philosophy upon which IEC was founded.

How does PRIDE PAC function?

The PRIDE PAC is governed by the Government Affairs Committee which consists of 13 members whorepresent the interests of independent electrical contractors throughout the country and are eager to expand the influence of thePRIDE PAC and the association. Our legislation will become a priority and substantive benefits will be felt by independent electrical contractors across the country, if we use this important vehicle on a national basis.

As the chart shows, IEC and PRIDE PAC lag far behind our closest allies and even farther behind our legislative opponents. In order to keep interests of our industry at the forefront of the Congressional agenda, we need to continue our enthusiastic support of our supporters in Congress, and to elect more of those supporters to Congress, through PRIDE PAC.

How can IEC members get involved?

As an IEC member, the first step to become involved is to sign your multiple year authorization form. Signing this form is a free and easy way to become involved in IEC's political efforts and does not obligate you to make a contribution!
