On June 7, over 50 members of REALTOR® Association of Central Massachusetts made the trip to Boston for the annual REALTOR® Day on Beacon Hill. Governor Charlie Baker was the keynote speaker and discussed his plans to spur the housing production. Our Government Affairs Committee would like to remind all members of the importance of advocacy and investing in RPAC.
Our next event is our annual Legislative Breakfast being held on September 21 at the Publick House in Sturbridge. Please visit our website for more information and to learn about legislation affecting our industry.
Every RPAC Contribution Counts!
RACM is committed to achieving our 2018 RPAC goal and we are excited to say we are less than 30 contributions away from accomplishing it!
RACM is proud to announce our new membership benefit, The Exclusive RACM Members Facebook Group. We understand your schedule is busy and it is hard to make it to in-person events and network. We have created this 'members only' group as a platform to receive RACM membership updates, learn more about the benefits of your membership and most importantly act as a platform for members to network with the 1,600+ RACM members.
RACM NEW HOURS
Please note that the RACM Office has revised hours and is now open weekdays from 8AM - 4PM. Feel free to stop in and we will be happy to assist you!
RACM NEW LOCATION
As a result of thoughtful examination and careful planning, the administrative offices for REALTOR® Association of Central Massachusetts will be moving next door to 32 Coolidge Street effective August 1. The reason for the move is to utilize our headquarters more efficiently as there was much space that was underused. We have also entered into a new lease with Verderese Financial who will be taking over the 492 Washington Street space. Our classroom will still be open for business at 492 Washington Street. However, there will be construction during the months of August and September so please be patient.
An appointment must be made with Lisa Sprague for all of your lockbox needs. Walk-ins will no longer be accepted. Be sure to call Lisa at 508-832-6600 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Massachusetts Association of REALTORS® Charitable Foundation is pleased to announce that they are so close to making the Welcome Home license plate available to Massachusetts residents.
