RPAC & MARPAC
The REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) is the backbone of REALTORS®in Washington, D.C. Nationwide; RPAC represents nearly one million politically active REALTORS® and here in Maine, RPAC represents nearly 4,000 Realtors® across the State.
RPAC is the only political group in the country organized for REALTORS®, run by REALTORS® and exists solely to further issues important to REALTORS®. Because of the combined strength of our members who contribute, through the Maine RPAC we have achieved many legislative and regulatory successes.
If REALTORS® do not speak out, get involved and help shape the discussion, someone else will. No one knows a Maine community better than a Maine REALTOR®. REALTORS® know the lay of the land, the families, the best schools, the neighborhoods and the leaders of any given area. Maine REALTORS® are on the front line as defenders of real estate issues.
To donate to MARPAC, please contact Suzanne Guild.
