GCP Political Action Committee

The Greater Cleveland Partnership Political Action Committee (GCP PAC) is a nonpartisan, member-driven endeavor committed to advancing the business community’s interests by building and reinforcing relationships and supporting candidates and current elected officials at the state and local levels of government.  

By contributing to the campaign efforts of those that will further advance the GCP's Public Policy Agenda priorities, we provide our members with a unique opportunity to advocate for an environment that encourages economic growth and prosperity. 

The GCP PAC represents a strong, unified voice for businesses of all sizes and industries in our region and aids businesses in educating key decision makers on issues that are important to them.
