The REALTORS® Political Action Committee, or RPAC, – a national bipartisan grassroots-based political advocacy organization – has added another name to its “Hall of Fame.” Connie Johnson, a current member and past president from the Greater Tampa REALTORS®, was inducted into the RPAC Hall of Fame recently in recognition of her contribution and support.
“RPAC is there to help shape the future of our industry,” said Johnson, a REALTOR® with Coldwell Banker. “I’m proud to be the first GTR member inducted into the Hall of Fame, and even prouder to have been a faithful supporter all these years.” Johnson became a RPAC Major Investor in 2006. The RPAC Hall of Fame recognizes dedicated members whose investments total an aggregate of at least $25,000. Members are inducted at member meetings in May in Washington, D.C. and are recognized with a lapel pin, an inscription of their name on a plaque on the National Association of REALTORS®’ Washington, D.C. building rooftop, and a plaque commemorating their support. Johnson has supported RPAC for 21 years, and has been a member of the National Association of REALTORS® since 1988. Connie currently holds the ABR and GRI REALTOR® designations and she is also a member of several Florida REALTORS® committees, including RPAC, Public Policy and the Public Advocacy Advisory Board. She was appointed by NAR to serve as a Federal Political Coordinator for Congressman Gus Bilirakis and she will be the 2017 Chair for the Florida REALTORS® Public Policy committee.
The first RPAC Hall of Fame class was inducted in 2002 and contained only 22 Realtors®. Across the country, nearly 700 individuals have been inducted into the RPAC Hall of Fame. RPAC is a voluntary political action committee whose membership consists of REALTORS® and affiliates interested in actively and effectively protecting the real estate industry and the dream of homeownership by participating in government affairs at the local, state and federal levels. The Greater Tampa REALTORS® are proud of Connie’s accomplishments and her 20+ year dedication to the real estate profession.
