The Federal Election Commission requires member-companies of the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas (MRAA) to sign this enrollment form in order for you and executive or administrative personnel of your company to receive certain information or be solicited by BoatPAC, the association’s political action committee.
Federal law requires members to sign this prior approval form in order for the individual (an executive or administrative personnel of the member corporation), and/or the executive or administrative personnel of the member corporation, to be solicited by BoatPAC. The company may not approve a solicitation by any other trade association for these years.
Your selection does not obligate you to make any contribution to BoatPAC, it allows BoatPAC to inform you of upcoming activities.
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) requires our political action committee to obtain written approval from members before it may solicit and accept contributions from employees of the member company. Granting Prior Approval does not obligate the company or its employees to support BoatPAC – it simply gives us permission to communicate in much greater detail about BoatPAC to certain employees (a member’s owners/principals, managers, professional personnel, and other salaried, exempt employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act). Prior Approval may be granted by anyone so authorized by the company. This includes the company’s chief executive or the owner/principal, but may also include those designated to represent the company.
Only one approval form is required per company; however, a signature is required for each year such approval is authorized. There is no limit on the number of years such approval can be authorized. However, the company may withdraw such approval at any time.
By signing a Prior Approval form you do not preclude your company’s employees from contributing to a state PAC, candidate PAC, corporate PAC, or an ideological PAC (i.e. National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, AARP, etc). The only restriction is that a company cannot give prior approval to more than one trade association PAC.
