Web ad for FEC candidate committee webinar, April 11, 2018

The Commission will hold a one-day online seminar for federal candidates and their campaign committees on Wednesday, April 11, 2018. Commission staff will conduct several technical workshops on the federal campaign finance laws affecting candidate committees. 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. 

 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 Campaign Committee Operations webinar in the afternoon, which will go into much more detail on fundraising and disclosure rules that apply to campaign committees. Option 2, for those more experienced in federal campaigns, includes just the two afternoon sessions. Participants will be able to download electronic copies of the workshop materials in advance, and will receive additional instructions and technical information shortly before the event. For more information, and a detailed agenda, please visit the candidate webinar web page:

 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, April 6; no refund will be made for cancellations received after that date.
