TAA-PAC

TAA Political Action Committee

There’s never been more at stake for the multifamily housing industry and the Triangle Apartment Association is leading the fight to defend the industry. One of the most important tools we have at our disposal to win this fight is the TAA-PAC, which gives association members the ability to directly support pro-business and pro-growth leaders who understand and care about our issues.

The TAA-PAC endorses candidates and elected officials with proven records of standing up for our industry. The TAA-PAC endorses candidates based on a number of factors including electability, positions on key issues, and a demonstrated willingness to engage with the association and our members about housing and development issues.

Please note that corporate contributions are prohibited and all contributions must be made by individuals. For more information about how you can get involved with the TAA-PAC, please contact Dustin Engelken at dengelken@triangleaptassn.org.

What is TAA-PAC? 

The Triangle Apartment Association Political Action Committee is a state-registered Political Action Committee. TAA-PAC, though affiliated with the Triangle Apartment Association, operates independently and has its own Board of Trustees composed of TAA members who make a qualifying investment.

Why does TAA have an affiliated PAC?

The pandemic has shown more than ever the impact that politicians can have on our businesses and it's critical that our industry be in a position to fight bad public policy. One of the best ways to do this is to pool the resources of our many members in order to provide direct support to candidates who understand our industry and care about our businesses.
