Ashton Sigler
36:32
Do family members contributions just go through the financial goals or can they counted as participation? Also can they be recognized as major investors
Theresa Ruby
37:05
our affiliates can donate to RPEC correct? Non of our affiliate members have voting power in our association and most do not pay dues, but if they donate anything we put that towards RPEC
Sarah Rayne
37:09
My association is working to change the name of our Affiliate Membership to "Preferred Partner Membership." Will this impact their status as a solicitable class at all? I saw you had Affiliate in quotation marks on the slide, so I'm wondering if we must specifically call them Affiliates in order to solicit them.
Michael Coughlin
40:45
In all cases, an affiliate must have a M1 number
Suzanne Guild
43:02
Is the credit card payment disclaimer a federal or state requirement? Where do we find examples of CC disclaimer?

cash check or card - all the same time limits in most cases
Jules Coleman
51:25
Once the local PAC forwards a contribution on to their state PAC, does the state then have another 10/30 days to forward that on to RPAC? Or once it arrives at the state PAC, the timeframe no longer matters?
Sandy Duvendack
51:41
we collect dues prior to end of year so how are you suppose to send it for the next year when you apply it to the year you receive it??
Bridget Garcia
51:52
The clock starts ticking when the local receives the $$ from the member, not when the state receives the $$ from the local?
Karen Ono
51:56
I thought the money than changes to soft dollars or hard dollars.
Michael Coughlin
52:04
RPAC year is not the calendar year
jamie Johnson
52:07
what happens if funds were not transferred in that time frame? When taking funds with dues we have investments that were made over $50 but were being sent in the same group as all other contributions. so it was more than 10 days?
Donna King
52:14
What determines date of receipt by state if mailed, post-mark or actual date received and opened at state office?
Nancy Deichert
52:34
If someone dates a check Jan. 1, it’s for $250, and the association office gets it on April 10. (example) Is it good?
Michael Coughlin
53:24
it was rec on April 10 ...that is the date that starts the clock
Ashton Sigler

Kathy Harbaugh
01:02:20
What about thanking or recognizing contributions to the PAC? i.e. Major investors? Can that be public?

This webinar is being recorded and will be available afterward on realtorparty.realtor.
Michele Gila
01:03:12
Can a list of MI be placed on Association website *not* behind firewall? I want to make sure I understood that point accurately.
Eileen Wolf
01:03:13
if you have how to invest behind firewall, do you still need to have disclaimer with it. if it is joined with a INVEST now button
NITA MARTIN

Can you advise the video guidance regarding content that is publicly permissible?

Just want to make sure…PAC funds are not subject to 1/3 rule only association funds.

only event funds
Jon Waclawski

Correct. If using RPAC money for RPAC event, 1/3 rule will not apply. Thanks!
Kristin Nash
01:10:10
Can a video on why members invest be shared on social media (public)? It does not encourage others to invest...just sharing their reasons for investing.

Christina Banasiak
01:16:34

Janine Dawley
01:22:21
What about items that you get donated from local businesses as prizes?
Sarah Smith
01:24:54
Our association has a page on our website listing our Major Investors. There's no language asking to invest, but would fall in the gray area you mentioned in thanking and recognizing MI's?
Ashton Sigler
01:26:09
