The ANFP-PAC is coordinated by the Government Affairs Committee in conjunction with the Chief Executive Officer, and other staff as well as the Washington Legislative Counsel. Together, these individuals will carefully review the voting records and positions of prospective recipients of ANFP-PAC funds and make decisions on how to expend precious ANFP-PAC resources. Input from ANFP members who know their local Federal candidates is welcome and encouraged.
ANFP-PAC would not exist without the voluntary contributions of its members. It is the way our association stands united in support of pro-ANFP federal candidates. However, ANFP-PAC is relatively small compared to the PACs of other national associations; for example, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics PAC routinely raises over $200,000 per two-year election cycle and spends nearly that much in support of Members of Congress and congressional candidates. ANFP-PAC has a great deal of growing to do, so for more information on ANFP-PAC and how you can help, please contact Mindy Theesfeld or Jennifer Karson, CAE, at ANFP.
