Let Us Tell You About It – ARSA PAC

In Washington, if you’re not at the table then you’re on the menu. Elected officials constantly consider policies that will directly impact the maintenance industry’s business. Many of them do so while knowing very little about aviation and even less about repair stations.

How can maintenance providers change that? ARSA’s legislative program provides a variety of resources. By working with the association, member organizations can become the kind of active constituents that make a difference. While the business of governing is completely separate from the effort of campaigning for office, it’s important to participate in the never-ending process of selecting members of Congress.

ARSA’s Political Action Committee (ARSA PAC) is a tool through which individuals in the aviation industry can amplify their political impact. ARSA PAC is a special fund that allows financial contributions to U.S. House and Senate candidates who support the legislative goals of the industry.

Only executive, management and administrative employees of ARSA member companies who have given solicitation permission can contribute. These employees must be United States citizens or lawful permanent residents (e.g., “green card” holders). ARSA PAC can only accept personal (not corporate) contributions.

To get more information about ARSA PAC, complete the solicitation consent form below. Completing the form in no way obligates you to financially support the PAC, it simply allows the association to provide more information (including how to actually give money). Providing this consent is the first step to helping provide the resources necessary to have our collective voice heard in the legislative decision-making process.

If you have questions about ARSA PAC or the legislative program in general, contact Executive Vice President Christian A. Klein (christian.klein@arsa.org).
