ABOUT YOUR VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS
Keep the RPAC box checked!
Florida REALTORS® PAC is an investment in your business, and your best defense against poorly designed small business, residential and commercial real estate legislation. Your investment supports pro-REALTOR® candidates, regardless of political affiliation. RPAC investments increase NAR, Florida REALTORS® and RASM’s influence in Washington, Tallahassee and local governments in Sarasota and Manatee. Help us build on past advocacy successes by keeping the RPAC box checked when you pay. The minimum amount to become an investor is $20. Support your industry, support RPAC.
The RASM REALTORS® Charitable Foundation (RRCF) is the charitable arm of RASM, providing funding for housing-related charities, college scholarships, and helping our members in need. Your voluntary contribution helps the RRCF and their mission.
Edit the field with your desired amount when you select “pay now” to start your transaction. Investments in RPAC and RRCF are voluntary and non-deductible.

The annual billing does not include MLS fees, which are billed by Stellar MLS in the spring, or Supra ActiveKeys, which are billed by UTC Fire & Security each summer.

If you are a member of the Global Business Council ($25) and/or the Commercial Real Estate Alliance (formerly CID) ($50), you will also see your annual membership dues for these groups. You need to pay these separately to renew your membership in these groups.
An electronic payment system was instituted several years ago to provide the most efficient, cost-effective processing method. This method allows members the opportunity to pay their dues at any time during the day. Payment must be submitted in the MY RASM PORTAL by credit or debit card. Payments are processed through the e-commerce Network of National Association of REALTORS®, a trusted and secure site that meets or exceeds all government safety and security standards.
What do I do if an agent is no longer with our brokerage?
Brokers need to remove the agent’s license from their firm in their DBPR account and then notify RASM that the agent is no longer with their firm.
What is the consequence for brokers if agents in their office fail to pay on time?
If your agent does not pay by February 15, their invoice will be transferred to the broker’s account and the agent will be turned into a non-member salesperson. If a broker still has open invoices on their account after March 15, their office is at risk of losing its member services.
Can a broker pay fees on behalf of an agent?
Yes, brokers can remit payment for their agents on their My RASM Portal under your Account Balance Box on the home page of the portal.
How do Business Partners pay their dues?
Business Partners will also pay their dues in the MyRASM Portal. Refer to the video at the top of the page if you need help. Renew before February 15, 2023, to be included in the newest edition of our Business Partner Directory. This highly popular and valued member benefit will be delivered to all real estate offices in Sarasota and Manatee counties in the Spring of 2023.
