Major Investors are the backbone of RPAC, making up more than one-third of the funds NAR receives. As such, they receive special benefits and recognition.
With a minimum annual investment of $1,000, there are four levels within the RPAC Major Investor Program.
RPAC MAJOR INVESTORS: $1,000 & UP
RPAC’s Major Investors are an elite and passionate group of REALTORS® whose investments shape the political future of the real estate industry. Major Investors are eligible to participate in the RPAC Recognition Program, with specific benefits and accolades that acknowledge their support of RPAC.
When RPAC supports REALTOR®-friendly candidates and issues, we give them a leg up. It makes a strong statement for a candidate to have the support of one of the nation’s top PACs.
What really sets REALTORS® apart from any other group on Capitol Hill is the President’s Circle program. President’s Circle members are RPAC Major Investors who invest an additional $2,000 directly to candidate and party committees.
PACs are limited to contributing $5,000 per election to a candidate. The collective strength of the President’s Circle program makes us true political players in the nation’s capital.
Candidates chosen to receive President’s Circle funds have met stringent criteria, and these exceptional leaders are called REALTOR® Champions. President’s Circle members are asked to invest in these Champions throughout the year. In order to fully impact the political process, these investments must be completed by September 30 of each year.
Members also have the option of investing $500 of their $2,000 to a party committee on behalf of any Congressional candidate. Likewise, Federal Political Coordinators have the option of investing $500 directly to the re-election campaign for the Member of Congress they serve.
PRESIDENT’S CIRCLE CONFERENCE
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 prominent political speakers.
The three-day conference is held annually at a top hotel; three nights’ hotel accommodations, receptions, and the full conference program are included in the $695 registration fee for the President’s Circle and/or Platinum R member. One guest is invited per registered attendee.
HALL OF FAME
The Hall of Fame recognizes dedicated members whose lifetime RPAC investments total at least $25,000. Members are inducted at the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings in Washington, D.C. in May, and are recognized with a lapel pin, a plaque on the D.C. NAR building rooftop, and a plaque commemorating installation.
