Maintaining a good business climate in North and South Carolina is the result of business-friendly legislators. The CFIC Political Action Committees (PACs) help to create and maintain an industry-friendly tax and business climate which ultimately keeps jobs in-state.

NC Merchants Political Action Committee (MPAC) and the SC Retail Action Committee Focus resources on elected officials and candidates who understand and promote the interest of the business community.


Your Investment in the PAC is an investment in your future.

  • NC MPAC and SC RPAC are dedicated to representing the interests of the retail industry.
  • Decisions made by elected officials can directly impact the future of our state. By helping to elect lawmakers who share your priorities, you are protecting your business and your livelihood.
  • Both states’ PACs are bipartisan.
  • Because state law prohibits the use of your membership dues for political purposes, our PACs are funded entirely by the voluntary investments of members like you.
