FEC to host May 16-17 Candidate Committee Webinar (2023)

April 5, 2023
2023 Candidate Webinar Header

The Commission will hold an in-depth, online training event for federal candidates and their campaign committees on Tuesday, May 16 and Wednesday, May 17. These live, interactive workshops are designed for those seeking an introduction to the basic provisions of the law as well as for those more experienced in the campaign finance rules relevant to federal candidate committees.

Attendees can choose one of two options. Option 1 includes three sessions: a Basics for Beginners session on Tuesday, which will introduce federal campaign finance laws, regulations, and reporting requirements to those new to federal campaigns; and a two-part Candidate Committee Operations workshop on Wednesday, which will go into much more detail on fundraising, solicitations, use of campaign funds, reporting scenarios, and disclosure rules. Option 2, for those with more experience, includes just the two Wednesday afternoon sessions. This will be the only in-depth webinar geared specifically toward candidates and their campaign committees this year, so register today to reserve your spot.
