THE IMPORTANCE OF INVOLVEMENT FOR REALTORS
Politics & Government Affairs
The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® encourages its members to become involved in civic life, to become knowledgeable about issues impacting their businesses and the real estate market, and to support initiatives that promote and ensure a healthy and sustainable real estate market. There are several ways to become an educated and involved REALTOR®.
Use the REALTOR® Action Center as a gateway to opportunities to work with elected officials who are making decisions that have a huge impact on the bottom line of REALTORS® and their customers.
You can sign up for the REALTOR® Party, which organizes REALTORS® under one common voice. REALTORS® can also invest in the REALTOR® Political Action Committee (RPAC), which builds bipartisan relationships necessary at all levels of government to ensure a sound and dynamic real estate market.
The CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®
