The Architects of Colorado Political Committee (ARCpac) empowers architects to play an active role in the election process. Through ARCpac, AIA Colorado members can collectively donate to candidates who fight for issues on behalf of architects.
What is ARCpac?
- ARCpac is a Political Committee (PC) for the financial support of state-level candidates created by AIA Colorado members. Political Committees are often utilized by groups with a common interest, such as architects, who are looking to collect larger contributions from people and corporations to provide modest support in numerous elections.
- Both individuals and companies can make contributions of up to $575 to ARCpac every two-year election cycle.
- Contributions from ARCpac to state level candidates are limited to $400 per election cycle.
