Strong Start to 2020 by ARPAC Major Investors
March 16, 2020
In typical Alabama REALTOR® fashion, the Alabama REALTORS® Political Action Committee (ARPAC) Major Investors have started off the year strong by investing and pledging to support ARPAC in 2020!
ARPAC is the political arm of the Alabama Association of REALTORS®, and the investments made in ARPAC aggressively pursue the election and re-election of candidates for local and state office who stand up and support real estate professionals on key issues that are critical to the real estate industry.
"Our PAC is strong, and that is thanks in large part to our generous investors, who understand the need to arm ourselves to protect against harmful legislation and fight for bills that will advance the real estate industry in Alabama," said Kim Mangham-Barelare, RPAC Major Investor Council.
In February, Major Investors were honored at the annual Major Investors Reception at Capitol Conference. Alabama Lieutenant Governor Will Ainsworth spoke to the group during the dinner at the Capitol City Club and gave an informative briefing on the Alabama Workforce Development Report. He mentioned many economic growth opportunities in our state and the positive effect those will have on the future of Alabama real estate.
“It’s exciting and encouraging to see such a large percentage of our membership participate in ARPAC and support as Major Investors,” said ARPAC Chair Forrest Meadows. “The monies invested in ARPAC really do translate to boots on the ground and give REALTORS® a seat at the table in the state legislature and in city halls throughout Alabama.”
Major Investors are those members who invest $1,000 or more a year in the Alabama REALTORS® Political Action Committee. These members go above and beyond to support their industry, and help us to be the leading voice of real estate in Alabama.
