Are CLE credits (or continuing education credits) available?
The FEC has not applied in any state to be an official CLE (or CE) sponsor. Attendees in the past, however, have applied on their own for, and received, continuing education credits for their attendance at FEC conferences and seminars. Contact your state MCLE organization (or state board of accountancy, for accountants) for more information. Please contact us if you have further questions or need additional materials for your application.
Are there workshops for beginners?
Yes. The workshop titled Basics and Best Practices provides an overview of campaign finance law that is particularly beneficial to newcomers.
How about someone who is a seasoned veteran of campaign finance law - Does this seminar fit their needs?
Yes. The advanced workshop covers recent developments in campaign finance law. All of the workshops are updated regularly to ensure that attendees receive the very latest information. Moreover, FEC seminars offer an opportunity for both beginners and advanced attendees to network with one another, to share ideas and to learn from each other.
