Do You Have What It Takes to Join the A-Team?

ALPA’s Advocacy A-Team award recognizes members who contribute significant activity to grassroots and PAC causes. By taking initiative to complete all of the items in this checklist, any ALPA member can join our Advocacy A-Team.

This is not for the faint of heart—very few members meet the requirements each year. Will you be next?


Make a donation to ALPA’s Political Action Committee. All donations are used to educate decision makers in Washington, D.C., and build pilot-partisan majorities in the House and Senate. Learn more and donate.

  Become a Wingman

Once you join ALPA-PAC, talk to your fellow crewmembers and convince three of them to join too. Recruit wingmen.

  Answer the Call (to Action)

Visit our Advocacy page and click each “Call to Action.” We’ve drafted the letters; all you have to do is fill in your information to send them (you will be able to review the letter before pressing send) to your rep. Take action.
