Who should attend this webinar?
What is the schedule/program?
Attendees can choose one of two options. Option 1 includes three sessions: a morning session, Basics for Beginners, which will introduce federal campaign finance laws, regulations, and reporting requirements to those new to federal campaigns; and a two-part Corporate PAC Operations webinar in the afternoon, which will go into much more detail on fundraising and disclosure rules that apply to corporate PACs. Option 2, for those more experienced, includes just the two-part Corporate PAC Operations sessions. Click here for a full agenda.
How does the webinar work?
Participants will be able to log in to the webinar "room" and follow along as FEC staff members lead the workshops. Webinar participants will see workshop slides, hear presentations, and be able to pose questions to FEC staff members via live chat. Technical information and webinar materials will be provided to those who register.
May nonconnected or trade/labor PAC representatives attend this webinar?
You may attend, but the content of this webinar is not tailored to your type of organization. The Commission will host a number of seminars throughout 2018 tailored to PACs. To view the full list of events, please see our website at http://www.fec.gov/info/outreach.shtml#roundtables. For additional information about these seminars, please email the FEC at Conferences@fec.gov or call the FEC's Information Division at 1-800/424-9530 (Press 6).
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 for Beginners provides an overview of campaign finance law that is particularly beneficial to newcomers. Beginners also benefit from the chance to network with more experienced campaign finance law professionals and share ideas with each other.
What is the registration fee?
The cost to participate for Option 1 is $80. The cost for Option 2 is $60. Refunds (minus a $20 registration fee) will be made for all cancellations received by 5 PM EDT on Friday, May 4; no refund will be made for cancellations received after that date.
