REALTOR Party Political Survival Initiative
March 30, 2011
If passed, RPPSI would give REALTORS® the power
to shape this pivotal moment for home ownership
Earlier this month, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) announced the formation of the REALTOR® Party Political Survival Initiative, proposing a dedicated dues increase of $40, which would keep the REALTOR® organization among the most influential advocacy groups in America.
The proposal will be voted on by the NAR Board of Directors at the Midyear Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo in May.
Because the proposed dues increase is “dedicated” to this initiative, those dollars would be used exclusively to fund political advocacy efforts. If it is approved, over 50 percent of the NAR budget would be devoted to political advocacy, which consistently ranks among members as the No. 1 benefit they receive from NAR.
Two-thirds of the dollars raised would be returned back to state boards that have met their previous year’s RPAC fundraising goals, to be used in support of local candidates, issue campaigns, and other political advocacy efforts.
The leadership of the New Hampshire Association of REALTORS® is working with the leadership of our 14 local REALTOR® boards to provide a forum for your comments and concerns, to be heard by your NAR Directors prior to their voting at the May NAR Board of Directors meeting.
Your local, state and national REALTOR® leadership value your comments and want to hear from you. You may contact your local board to provide comments, or:
