AED’s Political Action Committee (PAC)
As public policy changes, the equipment industry needs a strong voice in the political arena to stand for your interests. Legislation regarding infrastructure, career and technical education, economics and other issues that directly affect your dealership and your industry is frequently up for debate in the House and Senate. When legislators vote on these topics that are deeply relevant to your business, they need to know your side of the issue.
Associated Equipment Distributors (AED) is the voice of the industry in Washington and is dedicated to lobbying for policies and actions that will benefit our members. We want to be sure that we educate your lawmakers on the industry’s needs and that they keep your interests in mind as they vote, which is why we’ve established a Political Action Committee to represent your industry in Congress.
What AED’s Political Action Committee Can Do for You
AED’s Political Action Committee (AED PAC) allows equipment distributors to speak with a common voice in the political process by helping to elect federal candidates who share the political goals of the equipment industry.
With the numerous demands facing them, many legislators aren’t able to educate themselves on the needs of the equipment industry when they’re voting on relevant bills. Our PAC works to bring legislators into office who are already educated about and invested in the political objectives of the industry — individuals we can trust to represent our member’s business interests in Washington.
AED PAC is supported entirely by voluntary, personal contributions from AED members and accepts contributions only from members who have given PAC solicitation consent in accordance with the Federal Election Campaign Act.
Our advocacy and public policy work is focused on making your voice clear to lawmakers. Our PAC distribution serves our membership base and the entire industry to ensure that we have strong representation in the legislature.
