POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEES

HOSTPAC – state and local political candidates

The primary purpose of HOSTPAC is to support candidates for state and local political office whose election would be beneficial to the CRA. HOSTPAC accepts personal and corporate contributions up to $550. It is registered with the Colorado Secretary of State as a non-profit, unincorporated, non-membership political committee. HOSTPAC is not associated with any political party, candidate, issue, committee, or any organization other than CRA.

HIPAC – state and local political issues

The primary purpose of HIPAC is to support issues of concern to the foodservice and hospitality industry. HIPAC donations may be private or corporate. Unlike candidate-oriented PACs, there is no contribution limit on issue PACs.

Federal Candidates

HOSTPAC does not get involved in federal contests, however, NRAPAC, the National Restaurant Association's political action committee, works closely with CRA on contributions to federal candidates from Colorado.

State of the Plate Luncheons

State of the Plate Luncheons typically focus on a regulatory theme that impacts restaurants. Elected officials and regulators are invited to provide restaurant operators with useful information related to the subject. Learn more, click here.
