Commercial REALTORS® Invest in RPAC 
Thursday, October 4, 2018 | 4:30 - 6:30 p.m.
Your investment in RPAC is an investment in your business and peace of mind that your commercial business will continue to be protected from poorly designed legislation.
Since 1969, the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is clear: REALTORS® raise and spend money to elect candidates who understand and support their interests.

“RPAC supports REALTORS® and our industry at the local, state and national level, states Eric Freidman, of the Friedman Group Ltd REALTORS® and longtime RPAC Investor. “In Missouri, we passed a commercial lien law that protects our commissions. Our influence was instrumental in the passing the Missouri Historic Tax Credit. All this helps in supporting business and community growth."
