What is I.H.M.P.A.C.?
I.H.M.P.A.C. (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. I.H.M.P.A.C. 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.
