The President’s Circle is a group of REALTORS® who contribute directly to REALTOR®-friendly candidates at the federal level. Political Action Committees, like RPAC, can only legally contribute $10,000 per election cycle to a congressional candidate. The President’s Circle Program supports REALTOR® Champions—members of Congress who have made significant achievements in advancing the REALTOR® public policy agenda. The President’s Circle Program allows REALTORS® to contribute beyond RPAC dollars and increase the strength of the REALTOR® voice on Capitol Hill.
President’s Circle Recognition and Benefits
President’s Circle members must be RPAC Major Investors, and will receive the benefits for their chosen level. They also will receive the President’s Circle Conference benefit the year following their first year in the program. A long-standing tradition of the President’s Circle program is the preeminent President’s Circle Conference, which provides an opportunity to network with NAR’s top political investors and to engage with cutting edge speakers. The three-day conference is held annually at a top hotel or resort; three nights’ hotel accommodations, receptions, most meals, and the full conference program are included in the $695 registration fee for the President’s Circle member and a guest.
