This past week at CAMX, I had the opportunity to interview John Schweitzer of the ACMA. John is the Vice President of Government Affairs with the American Composites Manufacturers Association.

On this episode, we'll be discussing the ACMA's political action committee (PAC) and why it is so important for today's manufacturers.

The ACMA PAC was established over a decade ago to promote:

• ACCESS: ACMA PAC is the only political organization in Washington, D.C. specifically dedicated to the composites industry. An active presence on Capitol Hill is critical to balance our competing interests from other associations that are pushing their own legislative agenda. If our interests are propelled by the weight of a robust PAC, then we have the access we need to key Members of Congress.

• ADVOCACY: Congress routinely considers legislation that will have a lasting impact on the composites industry. A robust PAC allows ACMA to provide policymakers the resources they need to make informed decisions about bills specifically affecting our industry's bottom line.

• ALLIES: ACMA has worked hard to develop strong relationships with Congressional members that have proven to be industry allies. Contributions to ACMA PAC can be used to support those Senators and Representatives that are facing challenging re-elections in competitive districts.
