What is the difference between CPAC and LIF?
Contributions to the WICPA Political Action Committee (CPAC) are used at the discretion of the WICPA and Public Policy Committee to help get elected political candidates who understand and support our positions. Informed decisions are made about which candidates to support by closely monitoring the political climate, candidates’ platforms, and their track records.
Contributions to the Legislative Involvement Fund (LIF), a conduit, are used only with your consent to help get elected political candidates who understand and support our positions. If you contribute to LIF, you will be contacted for permission to use your funds for a particular candidate, or you may designate your funds to a specific state candidate on the contribution form.
Will I be recognized for my contribution?
Legislative contributors are recognized on our website, in Frequency (member e-news), on posters at our conferences and in our training center, and our Thank You publication.
