Brick PAC for a Stronger America
The PAC for Stronger Communities
On October 16, 2006, BIA's Board of Directors approved the formation of the Federal Political Action Committee (PAC) named BIA's Brick PAC for a Stronger America, as well as the formation of the Indiana PAC named PAC for Stronger Communities. These PACs were established to help safeguard the brick industry and increase market share for clay brick.
BIA's Brick PAC for a Stronger America
This PAC was established to assist BIA in communicating brick industry positions on key policy issues to U.S. Representatives and Senators in order to protect and strengthen the brick industry.
The Federal Election Commission has determined that a trade association may solicit only the restricted class of member corporations, i.e. their executive and administrative personnel, for contributions to the PAC. However, before BIA's PAC may solicit, BIA must obtain written authorization (a signed Prior Approval Form) from the corporation's principal BIA member. For your convenience, the Prior Approval Form is provided. (If you are a member without a password, please contact Gregg Borchelt at 703.674.1537 / Borchelt@bia.org, who will assist you in obtaining one.)
Because we need the signature of the BIA principal member willing to be solicited, we ask that you complete and then fax or mail the form to us at the fax number/address listed below.
We encourage you to be an active participant in the legislative process and by returning the form, you participate in democracy by making your voice heard. Brick Industry Association's Brick PAC for a Stronger America is a multi-candidate committee.
If you are a member of BIA and would like more information on these programs, please contact:

If you are not a BIA member, Federal Election Commission rules prevent BIA from forwarding a Prior Approval form. To find out more about participation guidelines, please contact Gregg Borchelt, BIA's President & CEO.
