back the pac!
The Georgia Better Government Fund (GBGF) is the apartment industry’s Political Action Committee (PAC). The GBGF is funded solely by donations and support from AAA and GAA members. These funds are utilized by the Association’s Government Affairs Team, as directed by the Government Affairs Committee, to support pro-business candidates and officials who will work with us to maintain the best business and regulatory environment for the apartment industry. Whether you own, manage and develop apartments, or are an associate member company providing products or services to the apartment industry, your business is regularly impacted by state and local legislation. The PAC increases our visibility under the Gold Dome and at City Hall, substantially enhancing the Association’s ability to build meaningful relationships with policymakers who enact legislation impacting our industry.
Over the past few years, we have seen an unprecedented amount of legislative activity targeting the apartment industry, while member support of the PAC has begun to decrease. This trend has been compounded and exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis, which resulted in the cancellation of a major PAC fundraising event.
Your Government Affairs Team is in the trenches and we need your help! When the PAC dwindles, so does the strength of our industry's voice in policy discussions at the State and Local level, resulting in poor policy outcomes for our industry. These are turbulent times for our industry - and for the economy as a whole - but if your budget allows you to continue or begin to contribute to the PAC, please consider making a donation today to help us meet our fundraising goal of $100,000 by April 2021!
Please don't hesitate to reach out to your Government Affairs Team with any concerns or inquiries related to current or proposed State and local government policy and regulation.
