REALTORS Political Action Committee (RPAC)

​What is RPAC?

The REALTORS® Political Action Committee, or RPAC, which promotes the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates and helps protect your business and private property rights. These contributions are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by REALTORS® in recognition of how important campaign fundraising is to the political process.  

What's RPAC Done For You?

It may be tempting to look at the relative ease with which you can practice real estate in Illinois and assume that today’s marketplace evolved naturally, that policy makers had your interests in mind all along. But that’s just not so. Without your associations’ efforts – local, state and national – you’d be inundated in ridiculous red tape and legal liability, and your customers and clients would have a steeper climb toward homeownership. See the recent legislative wins and losses.
