ASAE Political Action Committee (APAC) is comprised of ASAE members that support ASAE’s involvement in distribution of segregated political funds to candidates for federal office who are supportive of ASAE and the association management community in government affairs issues. Members meet via conference call 8-10 times each year to discuss strategies to increase fundraising for APAC, but do not have any mandatory in-person meetings.

- Actively promoting the fundraising receptions held across the country.
- Reaching out to other volunteers on councils and committees encouraging participation for APAC by promoting the APAC Champions program.
- Contacting prior donors to renew their contributions to APAC and encouraging consistent support.
