METPAC is the political action committee of AOBA. It is through METPAC that AOBA determines the candidates that it will support on behalf of our industries and whom it will urge AOBA members to support directly, as well.  Each election cycle, METPAC reviews candidates, interviewing them, as appropriate, deciding on endorsements, and then marshaling support among AOBA's membership for the candidates we endorse.
