RAR's Government Affairs Program
The Government Affairs program at the Richmond Association of REALTORS® is dedicated to promoting housing opportunity, protecting private property rights, and fostering economic development and a pro-business environment conducive to the real estate profession. To accomplish those goals, the professional staff at RAR works with RAR's Legislative Committee and RPAC Trustees to:
- Monitor local, state and federal public policies that affect property rights, as well as other issues relating to the business of real estate.
- Raise, with the help of REALTOR® volunteers, Political Action Committee (PAC) funds to assist candidates who support the real estate industry.
- Meet with elected officials to present our members' views and opinions on relevant issues and legislation.
- Generate opportunities for REALTORS® to interact with local, state and federal officials.
