What is the MBI-PAC?
The MBI-PAC is a tool that helps in every facet of our public affairs efforts. The MBI-PAC exists solely to provide financial support to candidates who reflect the ideas and values of Master Builders of Iowa. The MBI-PAC helps to foster relationships in working with candidates who will support our efforts. When the MBI-PAC contributes to a candidate, a mutual respect is developed which allows for a good working relationship in the policy-making process.The same holds true for all levels of government – federal, state, county, and local.
On average, the MBI-PAC raises over $100,000 from industry-leaders on an annual basis. Achieving such tremendous results is evidence that MBI members understand the importance of investing in their industry. To complement the membership’s understanding of the relationship between money and politics, the MBI-PAC takes an approach of providing variety, convenience, and value for perspective contributors. Opportunities to contribute can take many forms – from golf outings, sporting clay events, mail solicitations, and ongoing / multi-year pledge campaigns.
Any contribution to the MBI-PAC must be made from a personal account, as corporate contributions are prohibited under state law.
