At the forefront of our ongoing commitment to community and country is our Public Affairs Committee (PAC). The PAC and its various subcommittees address a wide range of public policy issues, sponsor programs on current affairs with prominent speakers, and serve as the conduit for the Club’s involvement in civic affairs.
The PAC advances its work in many ways, including coalition building, supporting public information campaigns, sponsoring debates and forums, and testifying before legislative bodies on behalf of positions approved by the Board.
