On May 6, 1998, the Asian American Hotel Owners Association submitted a Statement of Organization to the Federal Election Committee, thereby creating AAHOA PAC. During the 2004 cycle, with receipts totaling $7,004, AAHOA PAC contributed for the first time to two candidates: $4,000 to then-Congressman Bobby Jindal (R-LA) and $1,000 to Senator Harry Reid (D-NV). Since that time, AAHOA PAC has grown into one of the top-five hotel industry PACs, with receipts totaling more than $1,000,000. Thanks to our members' dedicated efforts, AAHOA PAC supports a diverse group of elected officials and candidates who understand how government impacts the hospitality industry and are committed to prioritizing the needs of small-business owners.
Contributions and Decision Making
AAHOA Government Affairs staff has implemented a point system whereby a candidate must receive a certain number of points before being considered by the AAHOA Government Affairs Committee for AAHOA PAC contributions. This system evaluates a candidate’s policy stances, committee positions, and more. The AAHOA Government Affairs Committee and AAHOA Board of Directors regularly entertain AAHOA PAC contributions.
Member Participation
The AAHOA PAC gives AAHOA the opportunity to advocate on behalf of its members on Capitol Hill and in state capitals across the country. AAHOA PAC would cease to exist without continual contributions and support from our members. All AAHOA Members are encouraged to become Members of AAHOA PAC and attend AAHOA PAC events in their regions, as well as in Washington, D.C.
