The Growth Energy PAC is our industry’s way to support candidates who are committed to supporting America’s biofuels industry. Our industry’s opponents are working hard to elect and re-elect anti-ethanol candidates who will continue to undermine every opportunity for higher blends of ethanol. The Growth Energy PAC is our best way to impact the election process and help influence who will come to Washington to represent our industry. Contributions to the Growth Energy PAC must come directly from Growth Energy individual members and certain ethanol-producing plants and associate members. Additionally, the Growth Energy PAC offers membership packages that offer exclusive quarterly PAC updates and complimentary access to activities and events throughout the year.
For more information on how to get involved with our PAC, please log-in below using your Growth Energy Individual Membership.
Please note, if you attended either this year’s Executive Leadership Conference (ELC) or the Biofuels Summit, then you are considered an Individual Member. If you did not attend either the ELC or Summit this year, then you can either purchase or renew your Individual Membership for just $15.
