VMA Political Action Committee

VMAPAC, Virginia Manufacturers Association Political Action Committee, is the political action group organized by the Virginia Manufacturers Association for the purpose of financially supporting those candidates for election to the Virginia General Assembly and statewide office who share a common belief in industry, the free enterprise system, and who recognize that all Virginians benefit from a competitive business climate that encourages economic growth.

VMAPAC is a non-profit corporation drawing bipartisan support from business and industrial organizations and individuals who have a sincere interest in good government and a firm belief in the private enterprise system.

VMAPAC is designed not only to assist business-oriented incumbents but to encourage well qualified new candidates, regardless of party affiliation, to run for the Virginia General Assembly.

VMAPAC is not structured to solicit for or contribute to federal election campaigns, so it may receive unlimited contributions from corporations, individuals, and other organizations including PACs. For more information on direct and directed contributions to the VMAPAC, please see MFG Makes Virginia.
