Purpose Statement

CSEA is recognized in Sacramento, across California and in Washington, D.C. as a political powerhouse, and it’s no accident. The PACE Committee educates members and the community on political issues that affect active and retired members through outreach, educational programs and other appropriate needs. The committee oversees and administers the separate political action fund of the Association—the Victory Club, which provides an avenue for members to voluntarily give financial support in elections and other political activities that are important to the overall goals of CSEA.
