# Is financial information available for NASPA? <br />You may view NASPA's Form 990 on our [[Financial Reports]] page.
Will there be executive stipends, will the members decide them, and will they be published? <br /> NASPA reports its budget in accordance with statutory requirements governing nonprofit corporations. Executive stipends, if any, are determined by the board of trustees. As of 2013, there are no stipends as such, but NASPA is reimbursing some expenses necessary for its operation, and disbursing approximately $2,000 per month in consulting fees.
# When will NASPA start spending its capital reserves?<br />While it is important for the organization to maintain reserves for unanticipated liability or expenses, we have already been allocating resources for various publicity activities. We are proceeding cautiously and will announce additional plans as soon as they are available.
# Will NASPA spend its capital reserves to subsidize prize pools at major events?<br />In general, no, because we believe that this would lead to the very top players being paid better without an increase in overall membership. We would rather spend money on reaching out to a broader group of potential players to encourage them to join the association.
