What is MABPAC?
Today, with term limits in effect, it is becoming more difficult to forge long-term relationships with Michigan’s elected officials. A strong political action committee remains one of the most important tools in creating stable and dependable relationships with lawmakers. MAB must continue to build and maintain working relationships with top policy makeers in the state or we will be left out, putting us always on the defense. The Michigan Association of Broadcasters Political Action Committee (MABPAC) is a Michigan-only PAC. There are two types: federal, like NAB’s NABPAC; and state/local. Since our organization’s first concern is statewide issues, we created a Michigan-only PAC.
The MABPAC is a way for broadcasters and associates to help elect like-minded candidates who identify with our issues. MABPAC is a non- partisan political action committee with a mission of helping to elect lawmakers and governors who understand and are sympathetic to our issues.
How will MABPAC make a difference?
MABPAC contributes to outstanding legislative leaders and candidates that support the interests of Michigan broadcasters or are on committees of importance to our industry. A Board of Trustees has been made up of local industry leaders who oversee its success.
