Corporate Congressional Action Committee
(CorpCAC) A proposal of the US Chambers of Commerce for member organisation to set up their own corporate-based pressure groups. They provided a manual on how to organize and how to operate such groups.
1975 October: - CorpCAC: How to Organize ... How to Operate.
A CorpCAC ORGANIZATION KIT, containing the needed mailing list forms and other materials, may be requested from : the Legislative Department, Chamber of Commerce of the US, Washington DC.
CorpCAC is a variation on the Congressional Action Committee used successfully by chambers of commerce and trade associations for many years. When instituted by top management with a clear statement of purpose and importance, CorpCAC can effectively involve large numbers of managerial employees — and, if the company chooses, non-managerial employees as well. The CorpCAC can determine the impact of specific issues on the company — and generate the grass roots communications needed to help influence Congressional decisions.
...Representatives of every sector of American business must beging lobbying, not for the preservation of the free enterprise system; they must seek to preserve and strengthen the economic and governmental environment in which our economic system can best flourish . They must learn to spot legislation that promises to establish new patterns of federal regulation or control on any sector of American business . . . . They must try to block it by coordinating and mobilizing the vast resources represented by American business.
[Senator James Buckley (Conservative NY) — brother of William F Buckley Jr]
