In order to articulate and advance the mason contractors' agenda, MCAA members must be engaged in the issues and the MAC PAC. The main purpose of the MAC PAC is to help elect pro-construction federal candidates to office who support the MCAA on important industry issues. MAC PAC allows you the opportunity to have a national impact on federal elections. Contributions raised at this event go exclusively to the MAC PAC and will be used to support pro-masonry candidates in the next election cycle.
