In 2005, the Flagstaff Chamber formed BizPAC, an independent, pro-business political action committee designed to raise and spend money on behalf of candidates and propositions at the local level that affect the business community. BizPAC remains active today and has participated in raising funds to support candidates in the 2006, 2008 and 2010 elections as well as take positions on various ordinances.
BizPAC accepts funds from pro-business individuals. BizPAC’s funds are raised and spent independent of Chamber member dues and spent in accordance with the Chamber’s mission to promote business. BizPAC is supported by a volunteer finance committee comprised of local business leaders who agree to organize and host events that raise funds for the PAC.
Additionally, BizPAC members can participate in candidate endorsement recommendations to the Chamber’s Board of Directors and in candidate recruitment activities at all level’s of government. BizPAC is also planning to host candidate training seminars for local office in the City of Flagstaff leading up to the 2012 City Elections.
