REALTORS ® POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE
Your commitment to the REALTOR® organization is invaluable. Your contribution will go to candidates and issues that make your job easier, advance the real estate industry, and ensure that the New Jersey Association of REALTORS® (NJAR®) has a seat at the table when policy leaders and elected officials sit down to make decisions. Our continued success depends on the support and interest of members like you! The REALTORS®Political Action Committee (RPAC) is a nonpartisan organization that assists in the election candidates who support private property rights and other issues that have a direct impact on the real estate industry on a local, state and national level. RPAC is funded through voluntary contributions from members of the REALTOR® association. One-hundred percent of RPAC contributions are used to support REALTOR®-friendly candidates, 70 percent of which goes towards state and local offices and 30 percent is sent to NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR) to back congressional candidates.

RPAC Movie Night
The first ever RPAC Movie Night was held on June 21, 2012 at the AMC Loews- Menlo Park in Edison, New Jersey. This event was designed as a fun night out where REALTORS® were able to enjoy a sit-down, dining experience at the movies with their choice of appetizer, entrée, domestic and premium draft beer, wine, house mixed drinks and popcorn. Those who attended received VIP service, complete with their very own server by the push of a button from their luxury seats. The event featured a movie showing of ‘Rock of Ages’, which features ageless music of the 1980’s, starring Tom Cruise and Catherine Zeta Jones. The cost for this event was a $250.00 contribution per person.
