About the Alliance PAC

If you are thinking about attending your senator or representative’s upcoming fundraiser send your contribution to the Alliance PAC, indicating which fundraiser you plan to attend. The Alliance PAC will then send the amount you contributed on to your legislator in your name.

Alliance PAC Trustees
The Alliance PAC Trustees are the governing body of the Alliance PAC and oversee/coordinate Alliance PAC activities. The Trustees also have the responsibility of final action on recommendations of the Alliance PAC Endorsement Committee. The Trustees (according to our By-Laws) are made up of 5 Alliance PAC members—a chairman, a treasurer and 3 additional members each representing one of the groups that constitute the Illinois Statewide School Management Alliance i.e. one board member, one superintendent, one business official and one principal. An alternate is also appointed for each of the four groups to represent that group should the Trustee be unable to act and serve. Alternate Trustees are also voting members of the Alliance.
Alliance PAC Endorsement Committee
The Alliance PAC Endorsement Committee is created to make decisions regarding the endorsement of legislative and gubernatorial candidates for Illinois public office. The committee is made up of the alternate to the Alliance PAC Trustees and 3 additional members from each group represented by the Alliance (i.e. 3 board members, 3 superintendents, 3 business officials and 3 principals). The Endorsement Committee reviews candidate surveys/information, interviews candidates and makes recommendations for endorsement to the Alliance PAC Trustees who have the final say in who is ultimately endorsed by the Alliance PAC.
