* The REALTOR® Action Assessment ($69 of the $184) will automatically be deposited into CREPAC and/or CREIEC and for other political purposes. Those wishing to have their assessment entirely applied for more general political purposes may specify in writing, and it will be redirected to a different account instead of one of the dedicated California real estate PACs (CREPAC or CREIEC). Designated REALTORS® must pay the $69 REALTOR® Action Assessment for each licensee of that DR (as shown in the nonmember count), and the payment will be treated in the same manner as the REALTOR® Action Assessment for members.
** Make a difference by helping promote REALTOR® interests through the political process and designate an additional $49 or more to the REALTOR® Action Fund. $49 is the suggested additional voluntary contribution but you may give more, or less, or nothing at all.
