PAC Golf Logo

The PAC Golf Classic is a fundraising event hosted by the Indiana Apartment Association to benefit the Indiana Multifamily Housing Political Action Committee (IMFHPAC). The IMFHPAC is the apartment industry’s Political Action Committee (PAC). The PAC is used to support candidates for local and state offices who demonstrate a pro business approach to government and are considered supportive of particular apartment industry positions. The IMFHPAC strengthens the apartment industry’s overall legislative effectiveness. These efforts have helped members save thousands of dollars by defeating unnecessary industry regulations. IAA continues to be the ONLY organization lobbying on behalf of the apartment industry. Supporting the PAC is a way for all companies to keep the lobbying efforts of IAA strong.

IAA will host the Annual Reverse Trade Show on May 4, 2017. This event raises money for the National Apartment Association Political Action Committee. This fundraiser is a highly effective business networking event that allows you the opportunity to meet one on one with owners and decision makers from property management companies. Vendors have the opportunity to have immediate contact with buyers on both the management and development/construction aspect of management companies representing more than 100,000 units across the state.

While the proceeds from the event benefit the National Apartment Association Political Action Committee, a portion of the money will come back to the Indiana Multi Family Housing Political Action Committee to spend on Indiana Members of Congress.

IMFHPAC is IAA’s nonpartisan political action committee that invests in candidates who are supportive of industry issues and are pro-business legislators. These funds aid in the election of candidates whose legislative voting records and/or positions on multifamily issues will enhance the business climate in Indiana. The IMFHPAC enables corporations and individuals to pool their political contributions and support candidates which help further IAA’s legislative objectives. A collective effort allows for visibility and access to candidates.

The 2017 Reverse Trade Show will take place on May 4th at The Willows on Westfield (6729 Westfield Blvd, Indianapolis, IN 46220). A current list of management companies attending, details on the event, and registration information coming soon. Please contact Lauren O’Neill at 317-816-8900 or [email protected] if you have any questions.
