SARASOTA, Fla. (January 24, 2022) – The REALTOR® Association of Sarasota and Manatee was recognized with two RPAC awards at the recent Florida REALTORS® Mid-Winter Meetings in Orlando, hitting two major goals outlined by the state Association.

Of all the Associations in the Mega Board category, RASM was recognized with the Fastest Board to Reach Fundraising Goal, having reached the goal in March of 2021, and the Highest Percentage of Goal Raised, having raised 146 percent of the annual fundraising goal.

“Earning these two awards within our first year under the Mega Board category is a huge accomplishment for our Association,” said Debi Reynolds, 2021 chair for RPAC at RASM. “The commitment of our members through their advocacy investments in the REALTOR® Party shows just how much we understand the importance of the policies that affect our business, as well as the lives of homeowners.”

These two honors were acknowledged at the RPAC Awards Ceremony at the Florida REALTORS® Mid-Winter Meetings in Orlando on Wednesday, January 19, 2022. For more information about RPAC and RASM’s political advocacy efforts, contact Max Brandow at
