What is IHMPAC?
IHMPAC (Illinois Hotel-Motel Political Action Committee) is the Illinois Hotel & Lodging Association's Political Action Committee. It is a voluntary, bi-partisan PAC formed to help and elect state candidates who support the hotel and tourism industry. IHMPAC strives to financially support elected officials and candidates who promote legislation and regulation that creates a business environment in Illinois which allows the hotel industry to operate successfully, consequently creating jobs and growing the economy.

IHMPAC Fundraising

IHMPAC Golf Fundraiser 
The IHMPAC Golf Fundraiser is typically hosted in September to raise money solely for use in Chicago/Cook County. The event continues to be a very successful and profitable fundraiser each year. The 2017 event sold out and raised more than $140,000 for the IHMPAC Chicago/Cook County Dedicated Fund, and for the past six years, the event raised at least $120,000 in net proceeds allowing our industry to continue having a strong political voice in Chicago and Cook County. IHLA gives special thanks to Patrick Donelly (Hyatt Regency Chicago General Manager), Paul Daly (Hyatt Regency O’Hare General Manager & Hyatt Hotels Corporation Area Vice President), and the Hyatt Team for spearheading the event. Additionally, IHLA gives special thanks to Rick Simon (United Service Companies President & CEO), for donating the Tuckaway Golf Club in Crete, Illinois.
