Distributors Political Action Committee – DISPAC

Our Distributors Political Action Committee (DISPAC) is the political arm of the Malt Beverage Distributors of Pennsylvania. The Committee’s purpose is to show support for and help to elect legislators who are sensitive to our issues. DISPAC is permitted by law to collect and disburse funds to achieve our legislative goals.

Distributor contributions helped pave the way for our most recent accomplishment – Sales of singles to cases including growlers! A healthy DISPAC fund is a crucial part of our efforts to continue to defeat attempts by supermarkets and convenience stores/gas stations to sell cases in their aisles.

It is essential that DISPAC has sufficient funds so that we can continue to support legislators who are advocates and respect our small family-owned and operated businesses. Remember – This is an election year. Please make a personal or partnership (no corporate) check payable to DISPAC and mail it to our Treasurer, Stephanie Eckert, at 230 S. Broad Street, Suite 903, Philadelphia, PA 19102.

We thank you for your generosity.

*Contributions from corporations are prohibited by law. Contributions are not tax deductible for income tax purposes. State law requires us to make our best effort to collect employer and occupation information for anyone donating $250 or more in a calendar year.
