RPAC Goals Surpassed: $103,227 Raised by 1,984 OKCMAR Members
Investments in the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) reached record-breaking levels in 2021. OKCMAR Government Affairs Director Gary Jones stated,”OKCMAR members should be proud of their incredible accomplishment. Despite the challenging environment, they have demonstrated a strong commitment to grassroots political engagement and understanding of the importance of RPAC to the industry and profession.”
At the close of the 2021 fundraising year, the record-breaking dollar amount of $103,227 had been raised with 49% membership participation. With the association’s record high membership number, that equals to 1,984 members supporting RPAC.
$12000 Contribution to President’s Circle
“While we are excited about the investments made to RPAC, we broke another record in the total contributions raised through NAR’s President’s Circle program. OKCMAR members contributed another $12,000 to elected officials who NAR designated as REALTORS® champions, which is another example of the strong support for our profession,” Jones said.
The REALTOR® Party is a powerful alliance of REALTORS® and REALTOR® Associations working to advance public policies and candidates that build strong communities, protect property interests, and promote a vibrant business environment.
Since 1969, RPAC has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is clear: voluntary contributions made by REALTORS® are used to help elect candidates who understand and support their interests. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by REALTORS® in recognition of the importance of the political process.
