MAPAC is the Missouri Agents Political Action Committee—a voluntary, nonprofit unincorporated committee established by the Missouri Association of Insurance Agents to complement its legislative program. MAPAC serves an important function for MAIA’s government affairs program by providing a cohesive voice in our state capital.
MAPAC pools contributions from Missouri’s independent agents and agency companies to support selected candidates for the Missouri House and Senate—as well as the Governor’s office—who share our business philosophies.
MAPAC is important to us as independent agents because it allows us to speak with one strong voice, reinforcing our "presence" in the state capitol.
The MAPAC steering committee selects the candidates MAPAC will support. A report of MAPAC expenditures is available for review by any participating member on request. Also, information can be obtained from the Missouri Ethics Commission.
MAPAC is able to study the campaigns of all districts and provide support in key situations. Contributing to MAPAC does not reduce the need for you to actively participate in elections held at the local, state and national levels.
MAPAC contributions or gifts to a political action committee are not deductible as charitable contributions for income tax purposes.
