Over the last several years GBRAR has placed a renewed emphasis on PAC fundraising. In 2020 GBRAR Members met and exceeded every PAC goal for the year. These voluntary contributions made by REALTORS® are used to help elect candidates who understand and support their interests. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by REALTORS® in recognition of how important campaign fundraising is to the political process. The REALTORS® Political Action Committee is key to promoting and protecting the real estate industry, and Realtors livelihood.
Each year RPAC establishes a variety of fundraising goals. For 2020, the following goals have been established:
PAC Participation (defined as a member investing $15 or more) GOAL: PAC Money (defined as total dollar amount raised) GOAL:
Major Investors (number of individuals investing $1000 or more) GOAL:

   Calls For Action: Each year NAR charts the % of members responding to National Calls For Action (CFA) on important legislative issues. As of press time, NAR has not issued a CFA in 2020. The last time NAR initiated a Call for Action was in 2018. At that time, GBRAR posted the highest Call for Action response rate of any Large or Mega Association in the United States!
