Thanks to FCBR's amazing Affiliate members we will be adding a monthly prize drawing to our RPAC iPad+ Campaign. Each month one FCBR Affiliate member will offer up a prize that will be drawn on the final Tuesday of each month. Just like our iPad+ Campaign FCBR members will receive one entry for every $25 invested in RPAC during our current year. Read on for more details...
REALTOR® Political Action Committee (RPAC)
Welcome to RPAC, the voice of REALTORS® from Fort Collins' City Hall to the State Capitol in Denver and on to Washington D.C. & Capitol Hill. Since 1969 RPAC has been promoting the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States. During the last federal election cycle alone, RPAC contributed over $12 million to pro-REALTOR® candidates to Congress, making it the number one trade association political action committee in the nation. Why has RPAC been successful? Because RPAC is not a charity. RPAC is a business.
On the national level, we give our money to those in Congress who both understand and support REALTOR® issues. We look to build the future by putting RPAC dollars in places that will help advance the interests of Real Estate professionals. RPAC is the only political group in the country organized for REALTORS®, run by REALTORS® and exists solely to further issues important to REALTORS®. Think of your RPAC contribution as an investment. The best investment you'll ever make in your business and yourself. RPAC is your best insurance against poorly designed small business and commercial real estate legislation. If you're not giving your fair share to RPAC, you're not doing all you can to better your profession, your business, and yourself.
