FPC Stipend Reimbursement
NAR, once again, will be offering a stipend to Federal Political Coordinators (FPCs) from each state (one FPC per Congressman or Senator) to attend the REALTOR® Party Meetings & Trade Expo. The stipend remains up to $1000 per FPC, which is intended to help defray the costs incurred to travel to Washington, D.C. for these meetings.
Any FPC not otherwise reimbursed by their state or local association (for example: member of the Board of Directors or Leadership) to attend the REALTOR® Party Meetings is eligible to apply for the stipend. The reimbursement process will be the same as in previous years: FPCs, following state reimbursement rules, should file their expense report with the state immediately after the conference. States then should submit one invoice to NAR for the entire state FPC delegation (one FPC per Congressman or Senator) that attended the meetings and are requesting the stipend.
The invoice should list the name of each FPC requesting assistance, and the amount (they may vary) being requested for each FPC.
Invoices should be submitted to NAR by July 1, 2017. Please email your invoice to firstname.lastname@example.org. NAR now processes all invoices electronically and following this procedure will cut down on the time it takes to cut the check.
Please DO NOT send invoices to the Chicago office. This will cause a delay in your reimbursement. Please direct any questions to Victoria Givens at email@example.com.
It is worth noting that due to the increased number of meetings FPCs are expected to attend outside of their Hill Day visit, changes to this stipend are currently under consideration for future years.
