Having an impact on the laws and rules which govern our businesses is a two-part process.
Part One: ORPHCC does its part by lobbying the lawmakers and regulators. As explained above, we are well-equipped to provide officials with the facts and information they need to make well-informed decisions.
Part Two: The second part of the two-part process is up to you. Before lawmakers get to Salem, they have to be elected. To be elected, they need yourhelp. You can sit on the sidelines and let other people decide who will be elected every two years. Or, you can step up to the plate and help decide who gets elected. Do we want our lobbyist to work with Legislators who care about jobs and economic development, or Legislators who care about more rules, more regulations and higher taxes? Contributing to your association’s campaign fund is simply part of the cost of doing business.
We must make a difference BEFORE election day, not just during Legislative Sessions.
ORPHCC has a political action committee called the Plumbing Heating and Cooling Industry PAC. Contributions to the PAC are used to support candidates who will fight for the survival businesses across Oregon, small and large. Contributions may be made from company or personal funds. It is your choice.
ORPHCC members (including Associate Members) are encouraged to join one of two clubs:
Capitol Club members contribute $1,000 per year to ORPHCC’s campaign fund. You can simply write a $1,000 check to the Plumbing Heating and Cooling Industry PAC, or we can arrange to bill your credit card monthly ($83.33) or in one lump sum.
Campaign Club members contribute $500 per year to ORPHCC’s campaign fund. You can simply write a $500 check to the Plumbing Heating and Cooling Industry PAC, or we can arrange to bill your credit card monthly ($41.66) or in one lump sum.
If you wish to make a contribution via check, mail it to 3340 Commercial St SE Ste 210 / Salem OR 97302. If you have any questions, please call 503-557-1203 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
