MAPAC is the Missouri Agents Political Action
Committee, a voluntary, nonprofit unincorporated committee established by the
Missouri Association of Insurance Agents to complement its state legislative
program. MAPAC serves an important function for MAIA's government affairs
program by providing a cohesive voice in our state Capitol.
MAPAC pools contributions from Missouri's independent
agencies to support selected candidates for the Missouri House and Senate who
share our business philosophies and support the independent agent community.
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 MAIA lobbying team with the advice and approval of the
executive staff 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 personally in elections held at the
local, state and national levels.
Effective 8/28/22, LLCs that have not elected to be classified as a corporation under the federal tax code must register with the Missouri Ethics Commission prior to making a contribution to MAPAC.
The following organizations may contribute to MAPAC:
- Those that are not organized as LLCs.
- Those that are organized as LLCs but file their federal taxes as S-Corporations or C-Corporations.
- LLCs that do not file taxes as S-Corps or C-Corps, but that have registered with the Missouri Ethics Commission (MEC).
