GNIAR RPAC Trustees interviewed a number of local candidates on Tuesday, April 3, 2018. Trustees are responsible for endorsing pro-REALTOR® candidates seeking office in Northwest Indiana. After a long day of interviews, the RPAC Trustees have made decisions as to who they are supporting.
The RPAC Trustees is comprised of trained RPAC investor GNIAR REALTOR® or Affiliate members who have a history of being engaged in the political process, are unbiased and represent various communities and unincorporated areas throughout the GNIAR territory.
RPAC Trustee members serve a three term (four years if a term includes a non-election year) and are appointed by the GNIAR President. Each member must participate in ½ day training and commit to being available for candidate interviews for both the spring and fall election cycles. The number of daylong interviews is dependent on the number of candidates filing for election and the number of “hotly” contested races as determined by the Trustees.
