RPAC sterling R investors contribute $1000 per year but often prefer to spread the contributions over several months. Once the investor contributes $1000, the National Association of REALTORS® includes the investor in receptions at the Spring and Fall annual conferences and awards a lapel pin. The early recognition program allows the investor to be counted as a major investor immediately by making an initial investment of only $300 by March 31 and investing the additional $1000 by November 15. A traditional installment plan is offered but recognition as a major investor is not available until the entire $1000 pledge is contributed and the particular investor does not receive invitations to the NAR receptions until after the pledge is fulfilled. If interested in participation in the RPAC Major Investor Early Recognition program, complete the form on our website and forward it to the Maryland REALTOR® offices. The form can be downloaded at: http://www.mdrealtor.org. Click on the legislative tab and the early recognition form is under “RPAC”.
