17 Record keeping – Alzheimer’s All monies collected, other than for NARFE PAC, whether through the national dues collection system, fundraising activities or other methods, must go through the chapter treasury. When collected, these monies become dedicated funds and must be used for the purpose intended or collected. Monies collected for different reasons must not be commingled. The chapter’s treasurer must maintain a separate account in the financial records for each of these types of funds. The chapter’s treasurer should use a chapter’s check to disburse funds from these accounts. Any questions regarding the disbursement of funds should be addressed to the National Treasurer (

18 Record keeping – NARFE PAC Q: Can we collect money for NARFEPAC at a chapter meeting or federation convention? A: Yes. Collecting money at chapter meetings and federation conventions is encouraged. However, due to FEC rules, if the collection is made at a chapter or federation meeting, the individual contributions to NARFE-PAC cannot be consolidated and sent to NARFE Headquarters in the form of a chapter or federation account check. Personal checks payable to NARFE-PAC can be sent directly to the National Office, while cash contributions collected at a meeting can be consolidated into a single cashier’s check or money order. Accompanying the contributions must be a roster identifying the name of the event at which the contributions were made (chapter meeting), the date of the meeting, the name (and membership ID number if possible) of the donor and amount given, along with the total amount collected.

19 Record keeping – NARFE PAC Q: Can a check to NARFE-PAC be written from a chapter or federation checking account? A: No. NARFE-PAC is governed by the rules and regulations of the FEC. Checks from federation or chapter accounts may not be used to transmit NARFE-PAC contributions from chapter members or the chapter at large. There are additional rules to consider.

20 Record keeping – National Bylaws National Bylaws adopted at the 2012 National Convention: Section 3, item G “All funds derived from membership fees and dues shall be used only to support Association objectives”. Objectives are also outlined in the bylaws.
