Am I required to invest in RPAC?
Your renewal invoice online includes a voluntary RPAC investment which is strongly encouraged, but is ultimately voluntary. Please note that RPAC saves the typical REALTOR® approximately $25,000 each year and, without RPAC, you would be paying significantly more in operating costs annually. The RPAC flier posted on the left side of this page explains your benefits in more detail.
As you go through the prompts to pay online, you have the ability to modify and/or remove the RPAC amount (you'll see an "edit" option next to the RPAC amount) just before you input your credit card information.
