Join in the RPAC Photo Contest and tell the world what freedom means to you!
RI REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) protects our freedom to own private property. What does freedom mean to you? A Fourth of July parade, a political protest, riding a motorcycle, the freedom to own your business? Send us a photo or photos of freedom in Rhode Island, and you could win a year of free REALTOR® dues.
Just submit your entry (entries) on or before midnight on September 14, 2018 and you could win:
One full year of REALTOR® national, Rhode Island, and local association dues or $1,000.00, whichever is less. The prize will be delivered within one month after a winner is selected. The winner is responsible for paying any taxes on the prize.
