Advocacy News

The Tucson Association of REALTORS® advocacy program works to leverage the largest business organization in Southern Arizona and its substantial financial impact on Southern Arizona’s economy to proactively influence public policy affecting all aspects of real estate and our regional economy.  Our focus is collaborating with decision makers, community stakeholders and other business organizations to improve our community and advance the interests of our industry.

REALTORS® of Arizona Political Action Committee (RAPAC) is a member-sponsored effort organized to financially support candidates running for local, state and federal office whose position on real estate regulation and a free-market business environment most closely represent the initiatives of the Arizona REALTORS®. 

RAPAC strives to educate city council members, legislators and members of congress about our industry and guarantees that no decision is made that will affect our industry, good or bad, until our voice is heard.
