Two PACs. Two Reasons.

Big I New York members are called upon to invest in their future by contributing to two funds, one for New York state and one for federal action. Each serves a specific purpose. When you donate to one or both of our political action committees, you know you're helping support the very people who are working to ensure your ease of doing business. You get exclusive support with scheduling legislator meetings in your district, and you recieve special alerts on legislative activities and events.
