ALASKA COMMITTEE FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF RURAL ELECTRIFICATION (AK CARE): A TRADITION OF HELPING CANDIDATES WHO SUPPORT ELECTRIFICATION
The Alaska Committee for the Advancement of Rural Electrification (AK CARE) was organized by Alaska’s electric cooperative leaders in 1985.
AK CARE contributions are for candidates who support electrification efforts that benefit Alaska’s electric consumers. AK CARE is nonpartisan and makes contributions on the basis of a candidate’s support for positions and policies endorsed by the membership of Alaska Power Association.
Any director or employee of APA’s member electric utilities may donate to AK CARE at any amount. Everyone who donates to AK CARE is eligible to serve on the PAC’s board, but only one person from each APA member electric utility may be nominated by the utility to represent the utility on the AK CARE board of directors. The members who sit on the AK CARE board provide valuable input on candidates for office form the regions where their utility provides power.

AK CARE also has a partnership with the Action Committee for Rural Electrification (ACRE®),NRECA’s political action committee. ACRE was formed in 1966 with the mission of making the voice of rural electric cooperative consumers heard in the U.S. Congress. Currently, ACRE is among the top 100 largest PACs in the nation with more than 30,000 individuals contributing. ACRE is truly a grassroots roots PAC. Nearly 6,000 NRECA members, who are electric co-op consumer-owners, have joined the ACRE Co-op Owners for Political Action Committee®!
