The rare large-state honor, which recognizes goal achievement in five categories, shows that Fla. members understand the importance of political advocacy.
ORLANDO, Fla. – While final dollar figures raised for the National Association of Realtors®’ (NAR) Realtors Political Action Committee (RPAC) won’t be finalized until the end of the year, Florida Realtors® will be honored for winning the “Triple Crown,” which reflects attaining all five major goals outlined by NAR.
It’s rare for a state as large as Florida to achieve the honor, and it reflects the commitment of Florida Realtors’ members to political advocacy. They understand that actions taken by the federal government, Florida Legislature and local governments greatly influence the real estate industry and everyday life of Realtors.
“Earning the Triple Crown is a pinnacle achievement for any Realtor organization, but for a state as large as Florida, it’s an accomplishment without equal,” says Debbie Rector, 2021 chair of Florida Realtors PAC Trustees. “From the individual efforts of our members and staff, to the countless local and state association PAC activities, you all deserve a huge pat-on-the-back for making Triple Crown status a reality for our state.”
The “Triple Crown” honor is more than a gauge of money collected, it’s a reflection of the commitment the state’s Realtors have to advocate for their industry and make sure the real estate environment remains positive for buyers and sellers and the Realtors who serve them.
