Monthly Shout Out:

Local board RPAC fundraising is truly a team effort. Our shared successes are the result of the hard work being conducted at the local level by a host of exemplary REALTOR® volunteers who clearly recognize the value of building RPAC in order to protect our industry. Once again, the amazing team at the Dutchess County Association exceeded expectations through their legendary, sold-out Sunset Cruise along the Hudson River. From the Culinary delights prepared by Kelly Campbell to the leadership of the RPAC Committee, led by Dan Staley, Executive Officer John Greenan, his staff and the countless volunteers who devoted their time and talents to ensure another smooth cruise in the name of RPAC – thank you all for working together toward reaching our shared goals!
