The NASW Illinios PAC Needs YOU!

The NASW Illinois Political Action Committee is seeking volunteers in every part of the state to interview candidates for the 2010 Illinois general election, as well as to volunteer on upcoming campaigns.

The interviews will assist the chapter’s PAC in determining endorsements for targeted Illinois state House and Senate races. Interviewees will be instructed on the process and given a questionnaire prepared by the NASW Illinois PAC to ask the candidates.

All volunteers for other projects will receive complete training and support throughout the process. Whether you are actively involved or new to political campaigns, NASW Illinois PAC could use your help. Click here to find out more.

Why Your PAC Needs You Now

It is member support, both financially and in-kind, that enhances our political advocacy in Illinois. As we head into to the current 2010 election cycle and the PAC endorsement process, we are in need of volunteers. This is your opportunity to meet elective officials, interview them, and address the needs that are important to the social work profession.

Many social workers indicate that they are uncomfortable with the idea behind PACs. After all, we hear about undue influence corporate PACs have on legislators all the time. However, it is important to note that NASW PAC Illinois is monitored (as all PACs now are) several times a year by the Illinois State Board of Elections. In fact, we have submitted our reports to be online at the Illinois State Board of Elections Public Disclosure Web site for the past eight years (Well before it was a requirement), and there have never been any issues brought up in our public reporting. Please visit our yearly reports at the Illinois State Board of Election’s Web site. We are Committee ID #2674 and Committee Type ‘State’.

We have learned over the years the importance of electing candidates who support sound legislative and social policy. Member involvement has played a major role in electing progressive candidates up and down the state of Illinois that have had a positive influence on legislation and policy that affects the profession. These are trying times for human service organizations. Through the NASW Illinois PAC, we can work towards supporting and electing candidates who support our core values. But we need all of you around the state to help.

Call the NASW Illinois PAC today to find out how we can make use of our talents to make our voices heard in Springfield and in your hometown.
