REALTORS® PAC (RPAC)
"If real estate is your profession then politics is your business."
Join your colleagues in investing to protect your industry!
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.
Our goal is to position the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) as the largest and most influential political advocacy organization in Montana. Your voluntary investments to RPAC are an investment in the success of your business and a commitment to preserving the future of our industry. Political funding decisions are made by your peers serving as an RPAC Trustee.
Your contributions to RPAC help to:
- Ensure a vigorous and viable real estate industry;
- Protect private property rights;
- Preserve the American dream of home ownership;
- Advocate for tax reforms and reductions in burdensome regulations; and
- Add extra value to your membership in the association by ensuring that the REALTOR® stays at the center of the real estate transaction.
We encourage you to get involved in the political process and communicate with your public officials about legislative issues vital to the real estate industry. Investments in the REALTORS® Political Action Committee allow everyone to participate in government. Pledge your commitment to the future of the real estate industry by contributing to the REALTORS® Political Action Committee today.
The Montana RPAC Board of Trustees Roster generally consists of one to three REALTOR® members from each local board. Oftentimes, local RPAC Chairs serve on the Board of Trustees. For 2018, Joyce Miller will serve as Chair.
Agenda/Minutes: Copies of the Montana RPAC agendas and minutes are available upon request.
Useful Information and Links
Contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes. Contributions to RPAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. The amounts indicated are merely guidelines and you may contribute more or less than the suggested amounts. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal and the National Association of REALTORS® or any of its state associations or local boards will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed. 70% of each contribution is used by your state PAC to support state and local political candidates. Until your state PAC reaches its RPAC goal 30% is sent to National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 2 U.S.C. 441a; after the state PAC reaches its RPAC goal it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates.
