In 1978, the NAPS Executive Board established the Supervisors Political Action Committee (SPAC) as the legislative fundraising arm of the organization. Since then, SPAC has raised millions of dollars to aid political candidates who support NAPS’ legislative priorities. Only NAPS regular, associate or auxiliary members are eligible to donate to SPAC. Members can donate online, through payroll deductions, or by sending a check or money order to NAPS Headquarters.

SPAC has Group Collection Form that will help better identify SPAC contributors and enhance our ability to account for SPAC receipts. In addition, there should be separate SPAC Contribution Forms or completed SPAC Envelopes for each contributor, or listed on the 50/50 SPAC Form. All forms are posted below.
In many instances, SPAC contributors will use credit cards to make a SPAC donation. Forms that include credit card numbers should be shielded from publlic view and kept in a secure location until mailed to NAPS Headquarters. In this way, we can reduce the probability of a member's credit card being compromised or used fraudulently.
It is important to note, Federal Election Commission (FEC) rules require that SPAC-collected funds, along with the supporting SPAC Collection Forms be sent to NAPS HQ within 10 days of collection.
Unidentified receipts associated with "pass-the-hat" or raffles cannot be credited to the Branch/State. The Group Collection Form requires SPAC Chairs to reconcile the total amount sent to Headquarters with the individual Contributions Forms. All collected funds must be associated with individual NAPS members. In sum, the total SPAC funds sent to Headquarters must equal the total reported on the individual Contribution Forms.
Special Instructions for 50/50 raffles: Individual contributors who participate in a 50/50 raffle must be identified on a special form. The individual’s name and actual contribution to SPAC should be on the SPAC 50/50 Contribution Form. For example, if Mary Smith submits $10 to a 50/50, only the $5 sent to NAPS HQ can be credited towards a SPAC contribution, because this is the amount we report to the Federal Elections Commission.
Thanks for your help in enhancing SPAC operations and accountability.
