RPAC: Your Best Investment in Real Estate

Since 1969, the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is clear: REALTORS® raise and spend money to elect candidates who understand and support their interests. The money to accomplish this comes from voluntary contributions made by REALTORS®. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by REALTORS® in recognition of how important campaign fundraising is to the political process. RPAC doesn’t buy votes. RPAC enables REALTORS® to support candidates that support the issues that are important to their profession and livelihood.

NEW: RPAC Recognition for Local Boards

January 9, 2014

Beginning in 2014, Local Boards will be ranked against other local boards nationwide. For each of the four local board size categories an award will be given for First,  Second and Third place. The ranking will be based on an equally-weighted composite score of Participation, Major Investors and President's Circle members. There will be a total of 12 awards given to local associations. For more information, please click here.

NOTE: In order for a local board to be eligible for recognition, the Board must be active on the REALTOR® PAC Management System--meaning they must have a credentialed user that has participated in a REALTOR® PAC Management System training for local associations. For more information on how to get your Local Board on the PAC Management System, please contact Jennifer Hamilton.

Changes Passed regarding the NAR Issues Conference

June 9, 2013

The RPAC Federal Disbursements Trustees and RPAC Fundraising Trustees passed several changes to the NAR Issues Conference. These changes follow the recommendations of a PAG to the Leadership Team and then to both Trustees bodies. All changes will begin with the 2014 conference:

  1. Beginning in 2014, only President’s Circle members will receive an invitation to the conference.
  2. There will be a $495 fee for each President’s Circle conference registrant. Guests are invited free of charge. Please note that this new $495 registrant fee eliminates the guest fee that a prior Workgroup voted to implement.
  3. The name of the conference will be changed to the RPAC President’s Circle Annual Conference.

Brooke Roth (broth@realtors.org) and RPAC Staff (rpacpartnership@realtors.org) are available to answer logistical questions. If you would like more information about the rationale behind this decision making, RPAC staff can put you in touch with appropriate RPAC Volunteer Leadership.
