The Grocers Political Action Committee (GroPAC) helps strengthen IGIA’s legislative efforts
The Iowa Grocery Industry Association has been a successful legislative advocate for the grocery industry for decades. However, day-to-day lobbying alone is not enough. Associations need to have a strong political action committee fund as well, and the IGIA’s is called Grocers Political Action Committee – or GroPAC.
GroPAC was re-established in 1998 to support candidates for state office whose philosophies, actions, positions and voting records reflect an understanding and concern for Iowa’s general business and food industry. This means that GroPAC is not affiliated with any specific candidate, political party or other political action committee. Due consideration for campaign contribution is given to any state legislative candidate – Democrat or Republican – who is willing to work with the grocery industry. It provides the IGIA with an opportunity to help committed candidates get elected and re-elected.
Having a strong PAC gives Iowa’s grocery and convenience store industry an enhanced presence on Capitol Hill and improves the ability of IGIA advocates and members to develop and maintain working relationships with legislators. It differentiates the grocery industry from other worthy interest groups, as well as from opponents of its interests.
