Local associations were honored for their RPAC participation and contributions at a luncheon in Harrisburg yesterday as a part of the Winter Business Meetings. Associations were awarded for per capita investments, participation percentages and improvement.
“The record-setting RPAC fundraising numbers are very impressive. In 2022, PA RPAC raised $1,049,368 from 16,099 investors,” said Ken Enochs, the 2022 chair of the RPAC Fundraising Committee.
“The hard work that was done by the Fundraising Committee over the entire year along with all of our local association fundraising committee members and staff across the commonwealth to engage our members at these elevated participation levels is indicative of their personal commitment to our profession while protecting homeownership and private property rights,” Enochs added.
Guest speaker David Kent, NAR Realtor® party disbursement liaison, said “Ya’ll are rock stars with your fundraising efforts and it’s incredible! You believe in it because you know it matters.”
