What is an RPAC Investment?
RPAC is your best investment in real estate! The REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) is the nation’s largest, most successful, and most bipartisan political action committee. Your voluntary investment is used to improve your bottom line in several ways: Through issues mobilization, political advocacy, and by directly supporting candidates at the local, state, and federal levels of government who champion the ideals and principles of REALTORS®. To learn more about the REALTOR® Political Action Committee and its initiatives, please visit www.pauldingrealtors.com/rpac or www.realtorparty.realtor.
Is an RPAC Investment included in my renewal?
A fair share RPAC Investment is included on each member's renewal to help reach the Association's annual REALTOR® Party fundraising goals, but your participation is voluntary. If renewing online, after you select "pay dues" and before you enter your credit card information, you will see a blue edit link next to the RPAC investment on the order summary. If you click on the edit button you'll be taken to a page that will allow you to adjust your investment to any amount you'd feel comfortable contributing or to opt out from investing at this time.
Am I required to invest in RPAC?
Your renewal invoice online includes a voluntary RPAC investment which is strongly encouraged, but is ultimately voluntary. Please note that RPAC saves the typical REALTOR® approximately $25,000 each year and, without RPAC, you would be paying significantly more in operating costs annually. The RPAC flyer explains your benefits in more detail.
As you go through the prompts to pay online, you have the ability to modify and/or remove the RPAC amount (you'll see an "edit" option next to the RPAC amount) just before you input your credit card information.
