The Commission will expand its online compliance training program during the 2015-16 election cycle and replace its in-house seminars and workshops with webinars. This move reflects the relative attendance numbers for in-person and online training over the last year and the FEC’s desire to increase training opportunities for committees by eliminating travel time and expense.
The online programs will share the FECConnect moniker originally ascribed to the agency’s personalized online training program launched in 2014, and will include:
Day-long programs covering rules for candidates, party committees and PACs, as well as 90-minute workshops on specific topics.
A growing library of online training videos on various compliance topics
The original FECConnect individualized training service for individuals, committees and other groups.
In addition to these online training programs, the Commission will continue to offer two-day regional conferences throughout the country. During 2015, regional conferences will be held in Chicago, August 25-26, and in San Diego, October 20-21.
