As the largest trade association in the U.S., the National Association of REALTORS® advocates every day on behalf of the nation's 1 million REALTORS® and 75 million property owners. NAR is widely considered one of the most effective advocacy organizations in the country.
As your local REALTOR® Association, the Greater Albuquerque Association of REALTORS® works with the Commercial Association of REALTORS® and the REALTOR® Association of New Mexico to help ensure the needs of Central New Mexico’s REALTORS® and homeowners remain front and center in the minds of our local elected officials.
This advocacy is funded by your investment to the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC).
On all levels, national, state and local, the RPAC is a non-partisan political action committee that supports candidates of all parties based on their ability to win and their position on our advocacy issues.
Central NM Advocacy: RPAC-NM and RECPAC
While NAR advocates on federal policy, Greater Albuquerque REALTORS® have two powerful local advocates in their corner – The REALTORS® Political Action Committee of New Mexico (RPAC-NM) and the Real Estate Community Political Action Committee (RECPAC).
Trustees for RPAC-NM’s Central District and Trustees for RECPAC work hand-in-hand to select candidates supported and the issues for which we fight at the state level.
With input from our members, RECPAC Trustees determine the candidates the Association support for City and County positions and advocate on local issues that effect our industry and clients. They also help introduce members to their elected officials through round-tables, receptions and meet-and-greets.
Community Programs and Education
In addition to advocating in the political realm, RPAC and RECPAC work together provide education to our REALTORS® on important community issues like Smart Growth and Fair Housing.
