Your Dollars at Work

In all of our activities, we are faithful stewards of your dollars. A board of directors, chaired by Mitch Paradise, governs the PAC and meets regularly to discuss and monitor issues and candidates. PAC membership fees and contributions support candidates and fund advocacy efforts, policy campaigns and programs supporting public policy issues. Contributions must be from personal funds payable to The Real Estate Council PAC and are not tax deductible.

For more information about the PAC, contact Linda McMahon at lmcmahon@recouncil.com or 214.580.1681.

Join the PAC

The PAC is open to all members of The Real Estate Council. Your membership in and contributions to the PAC ensure that our professional advocates represent your business interests locally and in Austin. The PAC also directly funds our candidate endorsements.

Membership in the PAC begins at $50, but we encourage you to join at the $1,000 level to qualify to participate on the PAC board. Our goal is 100% member support of the PAC.
