R What?

RPAC is somewhat mysterious if you are not routinely engaged with the governmental affairs side of our industry.  For starters RPAC = Realtors Political Action Committee.  Funds are collected to support positions favorable to our interest on the local, state and national levels.  It is one of the most influential PAC's in the U.S. at the federal level.  In the recent past these funds have been used to support pro-growth candidates in Cary, fight transfer tax fees in counties throughout North Carolina, and support positions that protect property rights and ease access to mortgages.  


Highlights from this week's presentation from Asa Fleming:  


1. It's an elective decision
2. Small investments are just fine, big ones are certainly appreciated.  $25 annually is suggested as a fair share contribution.

4. There's an upcoming raffle that creates a fun way to invest at $25/ticket. Details coming in March.
