Your Dollars at Work

In all of our activities, we are faithful stewards of your dollars. A board of directors, chaired by Gerald Dunn, 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.

If you have any questions about TREC’s Political Action Committee, please contact our Director of Public Policy Bryan Tony.
