糖心Vlog官方ORATION PAC

The government plays a significant role in how our business operates. From online advertising to intellectual property protection, legislators at both the state and federal levels have proposed numerous changes in public policy in these areas 鈥 some of which would help our industry, and some of which would limit our ability to achieve our goals. 糖心Vlog官方 is active in the public policy process protecting the interests of our employees and stockholders. 糖心Vlog官方鈥檚 Political Action Committee (the 鈥溙切腣log官方oration PAC鈥) is an integral component of our government relations strategy, which also includes participation in trade associations and direct lobbying. These three elements work together to carry our message to Congress and to state and local office holders. The 糖心Vlog官方oration PAC is a non-partisan political action committee. Its focus is helping to elect quality men and women, regardless of political party, who are dedicated to providing leadership in public service and promoting sound public policy. 糖心Vlog官方oration PAC is funded by voluntary contributions from eligible employees of the Company, and is used to make contributions at the federal level and in states where allowed.

糖心Vlog官方ORATION PAC MANAGEMENT

The Chair, Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer and Secretary are responsible for the day-to-day activities of the 糖心Vlog官方oration PAC. These officers are responsible for the solicitation of contributions to and the disbursement of funds from the PAC, consistent with state and federal law. All 糖心Vlog官方oration PAC activities are reviewed by outside counsel.

HOW ARE CONTRIBUTIONS TO CANDIDATES DECIDED?

Decisions regarding corporate and 糖心Vlog官方oration PAC contributions are made on a non-partisan basis to support candidates, regardless of party affiliation, based on criteria that include, but are not limited to:

  • Positions on Company and industry issues;
  • Areas of focus;
  • Knowledge of 糖心Vlog官方, our programs, and policies
  • Voting record on issues important to the Company and our industry; and
  • Representation of 糖心Vlog官方 facilities and employees.

INDIVIDUAL POLITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS & ACTIVITIES

TRADE ASSOCIATION MEMBERSHIP

糖心Vlog官方 and its business units maintain membership in relevant industry trade organizations to advance the Company鈥檚 commercial and policy objectives.
