As NMHC’s new PAC Chairman, David Schwartz is committed to maintaining a strong political presence on Capitol Hill. As we approach the upcoming midterm elections, early support for NMHC PAC will be critical as we work to reach our $1.5 million 2018 goal. To that end, David and the PAC Committee will redouble efforts to increase NMHC Board Members level participation.
NMHC PAC's mission is to support the apartment industry's legislative goals and educate Congress about critical issues important to the multifamily industry. The PAC helps NMHC's Government Affairs team support our legislative champions and build relationships with new Members of Congress. NMHC scored key legislative and regulatory successes last year but it is imperative that we continue to maintain a strong presences on Capitol Hill as lawmakers debate issues like housing finance reform, the National Flood Insurance Program, an infrastructure package, data security, fair housing and fixes to last year’s tax reform overhaul.
Already, we have raised $150,000 to date. We are urging member firms to start their fundraising campaigns early and the PAC Committee will be reaching out to specific firms for their support.
The NMHC team is also working to schedule the first PAC conference call of the year to discuss PAC efforts and we plan to have a special guest speaker to join the call to give us unique insights into the status of the Congressional races and what may be in store for the House and Senate.
When sent, please feel free to share the PAC conference call information with your PAC-eligible employees. Thank you for past support and if you wish to contribute today, please go to www.nmhc.org/joinpac.

We look forward to working together with you to make 2018 another productive and successful year for the multifamily industry.
As always, thank you for your time and attention!
