Fundraising is in full swing as we head into the second quarter of 2018. To date, NMHC PAC has brought in $352,080 of this year’s $1.5 million goal. With the Spring Board Meeting just around the corner, members are encouraged to provide their support before April 23 to be recognized and thanked at the meeting.
One of the mainstays of NMHC PAC is the Personal Dollar Initiative. This effort encourages NMHC executives to contribute directly to candidates who are supportive of the apartment industry. These events give NMHC members critical one-on-one time with key Members of Congress to discuss issues that directly affect the multifamily industry.
The 2018 NMHC PAC Personal Dollar Initiative effort will kick off in just a few days with Greg Mutz of AMLI Residential hosting a fundraiser on April 30 for Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-R). Roskam is a member of the influential House Ways and Means Committee with jurisdiction over important issues such as taxes and trade and has a track record of working to get things done in Congress.
Several other personal dollar events are in the works, including one on June 20 for Congressman Joe Crowley (D-NY) hosted by Julie Smith of The Bozzuto Group; an event in Seattle hosted by Clyde Holland of the Holland Partner Group for Congressman Kevin McCarthy (R-CA.); and events for Senators Dean Heller (R-NV), and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND). We urge you to consider supporting these important events for the industry. More information about NMHC’s Personal Dollar Campaign can be found here.
