The strength of Michigan RPAC in 2020 was found in the more than 13,600 individual members that made an investment! We closed the books last year with a 41.73% membership participation rate, our highest total ever in state history! We surpassed our Major Investor Goal once again and finished a stone’s throw off of our previous record-breaking investment total.

Make sure to check out Michigan RPAC photo recognition for 2020 in the March edition of the Michigan Realtor® Magazine. Also, to view a list of the RPAC Hall of Fame members from Michigan and the 2020 Michigan RPAC Investors at the Major Investor, Gold Circle, Silver Circle, and Century Circle levels, please visit our 2020 RPAC recognition website.

The RPAC Trustees are proud of everyone’s efforts in 2020 given that fundraising event activity was paused for part of the year. In partnership with member leadership of the RPAC Trustees Committee, Michigan Realtors® leadership and staff is ready to engage with local associations, brokerages, WCR networks, and affiliate members for a successful 2021 RPAC campaign.
