Conferences and Seminars

Each year, the Federal Election Commission sponsors conferences/seminars where Commissioners and staff conduct a variety of technical workshops on the law. Discussion topics include fundraising, reporting and communications. Workshops are designed for those seeking an introduction to the basic provisions of the law as well as for those more experienced in campaign finance law. For questions about the conference/seminar program, call the FEC's Information Division at 1-800/424-9530 (or locally, 202/694-1100) or send an email to Conferences@fec.gov (include your name, contact information and track of interest (candidate, party, nonconnected or corporate/labor/trade PAC)).
