REALTORS® Political Action Committee 

RPAC stands for the REALTORS® Political Action Committee. A PAC is a legal means by which interested individuals with common goals, like a trade association, band together for the purposes of political action. The best way to positively impact issues such as property taxes, health care and property rights is through RPAC, a real estate professional's vehicle for political action.

Why invest? 

What does RPAC do?

As a real estate professional, RPAC is your PAC. It is also the real estate industry's vehicle for political success. REALTOR® volunteers raise contributions from other members across the state. These funds are then pooled together and contributed on a nonpartisan basis to public office candidates who support housing and real estate interests.

Seventy cents of every dollar raised stays in Wisconsin for state and local elections, and the remaining money is transferred to the National Association of REALTORS®' PAC for contributions to federal candidates.

The WRA highlights RPAC investors in a variety of ways. Learn about the different levels of advocacy investments at the button below.

Why should RPAC interest you?

RPAC is a critical business partner for REALTORS®. Up to 4,000 bills are introduced each session in the state legislature, and elections determine who will be voting on these bills. RPAC helps to elect the lawmakers who write the laws with which you and your business must live. Through extensive research and ongoing monitoring, RPAC keeps real estate professionals informed, involved and influential regarding the legislative decisions important to the industry.

Does RPAC buy votes?

RPAC does not buy votes. Candidates and public officials are honorable people whose votes are not for sale.
