The NC Chapter of the Appraisal Institute now has a Political Action Committee--officially identified as Appraisal Institute-NC Chapter PAC. This committee has the ability to raise money and further our legislative initiatives in Raleigh. The Appraisal Institute-NC Chapter PAC had a very successful fundraiser--its first ever--at the Chapter's quarterly meeting on Thursday evening, January 21, 2016. Over $2,500 in cash and in-kind donations was raised. This money will be used by the Government Relations Committee (GRC) to support candidates who will support our legislative initiatives in the future.

I would like to personally thank everyone who donated to the PAC, either by furnishing prizes or purchasing raffle tickets. Your money will be put to good use. Congratulations to all of our prize winners! A second PAC raffle will be held at either the summer or fall meeting, so look for that in the near future.

While we are off to a great start, we are well short of our goal. PAC contributions can be accepted throughout the year. PAC rules are very strict and we cannot accept contributions from a company or organization. We cannot accept cash. If you would like to make a personal contribution via check or credit card, please do not hesitate to contact me (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Paul Carter, Appraisal Institute - NC Chapter PAC Treasurer (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Checks should be made payable to: Appraisal Institute - NC Chapter PAC. In addition, each contribution must be accompanied by a PAC reporting form that we will be glad to email to you.

As always, your GRC is here to serve you, the NC Chapter Professionals.

If there is an issue you feel we need to address in Raleigh, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you,

Mike Moody, MAI

2017 GRC ChairĀ
