About Our Process
Your Association of REALTORS® has formed a Political Action Committee, RPAC, that raises money from our members, screens candidates, and makes contributions to the campaigns of the candidates. The Government Affairs Team and RPAC Trustees screen the candidates and recommends campaign contributions to the Board of Directors and the RPAC Trustees. Their recommendations are based in part on the candidates’ positions on real estate-related issues (party affiliation is not a consideration).
RPAC is organized under Federal Election Laws and South Carolina Ethics Act and managed jointly by the National Association of REALTORS® and South Carolina REALTORS®.
