ABPAC & BUILD-PAC
Every GBAHB member can and should contribute in meaningful ways to the success of GBAHB’s advocacy for the industry. Two of the very best ways every member can support the advocacy efforts of our association are by contributing to the Alabama Builders Political Action Committee (ABPAC) and to and to the Builders United in Legislative Decisions Political Action Committee (BUILD-PAC):
ABPAC: Influence that Counts, in Local and State Elections
ABPAC is the best chance to sustain positive growth for your business, right here in the Greater Birmingham Area and throughout Alabama. ABPAC funds help elect officials on the municipal, county, and state, and federal levels who understand the important role residential construction and remodeling plays in our overall economy and quality of life. By supporting the right candidates, we are ultimately helping shape legislation and regulations at the state and local levels that affect the home building industry and your business on a daily basis. Candidates who receive support from ABPAC dollars have demonstrated support for the homebuilding industry and understand how the industry creates and sustains a prosperous economy.
Of the many ways GBAHB members can support ABPAC, many have found the most cost-effective and valuable way to be as an ABPAC Patron. ABPAC Patrons contribute $2,500 annually, which includes their full membership dues, affiliate dues, special recognition, and complimentary admission to most of GBAHB’s member events. Plus Patron’s Club members receive exclusive engagement meetings with top ranking elected officials (Governor, Lt. Governor, Speaker of The House, Attorney General, and more). To learn more, call 205-912-7000.
BUILD-PAC: A Voice for Home Builders in Federal Elections
BUILD-PAC is the political action committee of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). And it is your political advocacy voice at the national level. BUILD-PAC is bipartisan – supporting both Democrats and Republicans – and helps elect qualified pro-housing, pro-business candidates to federal office (U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate). Candidates and Members of Congress are evaluated by BUILD-PAC Trustees, based strictly on their merits and voting records, measured against the most critical U.S. policy issues facing the home building industry.
