PAC Strategy—Tactical Budgeting and Effective Disbursements

Webinar • Tuesday, May 28, 2019 • 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET | Qualifies for 1 CAE credit


Raising money for your PAC is always top of mind. But it is the way you disburse that money to candidates that determines your impact. That’s why simply cutting checks isn’t enough.

Instead, you need a tactical approach that turns those candidate contributions into high-value engagement. Creating this new disbursement process requires a strategic budget that gives you new control over everything from candidate requests to FEC giving limits.

Now, let an expert PAC professional show you how to develop and use your new tactical budget and disbursement process.

Register now for PAC Strategy: Tactical Budgeting and Effective Disbursements.

Julia Domagalski is PAC Supervisor for McDonald’s Corporate and a pro at running association and corporate PACs. In this 90-minute webinar she explains how to use tactical budgeting and a new disbursement “mindset” to reap greater ROI on every candidate contribution your PAC makes. 

Strengthen candidate relationships. You’ll learn how members and PAC leaders can turn mere “check-cutting” into high-value candidate contact. You’ll also discover how to develop a strategic budget that helps maximize the impact of disbursements all year long. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to learn best practices for giving your PAC higher ROI on every check you cut to candidates, including how to:

  • Develop a strategic budgeting process
  • Give contributions more impact by engaging your members and senior leaders
  • Create nimble candidate-approval and check-cutting processes
  • Manage your bipartisan ratio and FEC giving limits
  • Address the surge of candidate requests at the end of reporting quarters

Remember, simply cutting checks to candidates leaves valuable “relationship capital” on the table. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to achieve greater engagement—and impact—from the disbursement process.
