The PPAR Mission Statement:
“The Pikes Peak Association of REALTORS® helps its members to be ethical, professional and successful by providing quality services and protecting the free enterprise system and real property rights.”
What is Government Affairs? In accordance with the overall mission of the organization, the Government Affairs Division of the Pikes Peak Association of REALTORS® monitors policies, ordinances and legislation that could adversely affect private property rights and the free enterprise system.
PPAR seeks to proactively engage in the public policy and political arena so as to not only ensure proper representation of the Association’s interests at various levels of the decision-making process, be it local, state, and federal, but to also contribute to the overall quality of life on the Pikes Peak region. PPAR works closely with the Housing and Building Association and the Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance to address quality of life concerns.
What is RPAC?
In order to protect the free enterprise system and the right to own and transfer real property, many REALTORS® understand the importance of contributing to the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC). With your help, RPAC can continue effectively aiding in supporting or opposing legislation that hinders our efforts to maintain an exceptional business.
The real estate industry is one of the most heavily regulated industries in the country and it seems that every day brings a new attempt by government to regulate, tax or hamper our efforts to earn a living. In order to continue the well being of the real estate industry, it is imperative that we work together through RPAC to make our voice heard where many interest groups compete.
