REALTORS® POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE (RPAC) – NEW MEXICO
RPAC’s mission is to identify candidates for elected office on the local, state and national levels, who will work with REALTORS® to promote and protect the American Dream of property ownership. Candidates who receive support from RPAC are not selected based on their political party or ideology, but solely on their support of real estate issues.
RPAC-NM is a voluntary, non-profit, unincorporated committee of the New Mexico Association of REALTORS®. Any NMAR member who contributes $15.00 or more, becomes a member of RPAC-NM. Fundraising for political action is conducted by each local board and the state association. The dollars raised for political action are split between the local, state, and national accounts. Local boards can request funding for local candidates and issues from the REALTORS® Political Action Committee of New Mexico. The RPAC-NM Trustees work to protect your business and private property rights.
CONTRIBUTIONS TO RPAC
Contributions to RPAC are not deductible for federal income tax purposes. Contributions are voluntary and are used for political purposes. Any amounts indicated are merely guidelines and you may contribute more or less than the suggested amounts. The National Association of REALTORS® and its state and local associations will not favor or disadvantage any member because of the amount contributed or a decision not to contribute. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal. Your contribution is split between National RPAC and the RPAC-NM. Contact NMAR for information about the percentages of your contribution provided to National RPAC and to RPAC-NM. The National RPAC portion is used to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 52 U.S.C. 30116.
The purpose of RPAC is clear: voluntary contributions made by REALTORS® are used to help elect candidates who understand and support their interests.

The Stanley H. Mathis Foundation
The Stanley H. Mathis Foundation was created in 1976 to foster high-quality educational opportunities for New Mexico REALTORS®. Seeing the need for professional education for REALTORS®, the Foundation began offering courses on a wide range of topics, including New Mexico real estate law, agency, code of ethics and more. Over time the role of the Foundation has evolved from direct course delivery to supporting a broad base of educational opportunities. If you are a REALTOR® in good standing with the New Mexico Association of REALTORS®, you are automatically a member of the Stanley H. Mathis Foundation. We are always looking for members to serve as trustees or participate on various committees that provide innovative ideas to make our foundation grow and prosper.

The Broker Involvement Program provides broker-owners with a quick and effective tool to rally their agents on critical legislative issues affecting the real estate industry.
What Does the Broker Involvement Program Offer?
Voice on Capitol Hill
The program is an opportunity to bring a strong and united REALTOR® voice to members of Congress. With over 16,000 broker owners and 450,000 agents in the program, the REALTOR® voice will be heard loud and clear.
Nothing needs to be downloaded and there is no cost to the broker. NAR gives the broker-owner or managing broker access to the Broker Portal.
Calls for Action response rates are significantly higher when agents receive their message from their broker. Nearly 40% of all responses on Calls for Action were from agents in the Broker Involvement Program.
