The NMHC PAC Breakfast at the 2015 Annual Meeting kicked off by highlighting that the PAC surpassed its goal by raising more than
$1.5 million last year.
A total of nearly 200 member firms, and almost 1,800 individuals supported the PAC, and the breakfast focused on honoring their contributions to helping us ensure a united voice for multifamily housing on Capitol Hill.
