On May 6, 1998, the Asian American Hotel Owners Association submitted a ‘Statement of Organization’ to the FEC, thereby creating AAHOAPAC. During the 2004 cycle with receipts totaling $7,004, AAHOA PAC contributed for the first time to two candidates: $4000 to then-Member of Congress Bobby Jindal (R-LA) and $1000 to Senator Harry Reid (D-NV). Since that time, AAHOA PAC has grown into one of the top-five hotel industry PACs, with receipts totaling nearly $500,000 and donations to over 60 House of Representative Candidates, nearly 25 United States Senate Candidates and a handful of state and local candidates.
Contributions and Decision Making
AAHOA Government Affairs staff has implemented a point system whereby a candidate must receive a certain number of ‘points’ before being considered by the AAHOA Government Affairs Committee for AAHOAPAC contributions. This system evaluates a candidate’spolicy stances, committee positions and more. The AAHOA Government Affairs Committee and AAHOA Board of Directors regularly entertain AAHOAPAC contributions.
The AAHOAPAC gives AAHOA the opportunity to advocate on behalf of its members in Capitol Hill and in state capitals across the country. AAHOAPAC would cease to exist without continual contributions and support from our members. All AAHOA members are encouraged to become members of AAHOAPAC and attend AAHOAPAC events in their regions, as well as in Washington D.C.
