What is RPAC?
REALTORS Political Action Committee (RPAC) is the voice of REALTORS® in government. RPAC raises voluntary funds from REALTORS® and uses those funds to help elect candidates for public office who share our views on issues that affect our industry and shape our communities. By supporting the campaigns of candidates who understand your business, Georgia RPAC ensures that your interests are represented when laws, ordinances, and regulations are being enacted. RPAC only considers support of candidates in regards to their support of real estate and property rights issues. As an organization representing REALTORS®, RPAC doesn’t consider other kinds of issues or political affiliaton. Georgia RPAC has contributed to Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. RPAC looks to build the future by putting dollars in places that will help advance the interests of real estate professionals. RPAC is insurance for our industry. Your RPAC investment is used to support candidates locally, as well as at the state level. A portion of the state's RPAC funds is forwarded to support national candidates.
