FEC to host March 25 webinar for candidate committees (2020)

February 12, 2020
FEC webinar on March 25, 2020 providing online training for candidates and their committees

The Commission will hold a one-day online seminar for federal candidates and their campaign committees on March 25, 2020. Commission staff will conduct several technical workshops on the federal campaign finance laws affecting federal candidates. 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 Candidate Committee Operations webinar in the afternoon, which will go into much more detail on raising funds, making disbursements, and the disclosure rules that apply to federal candidate committees. Option 2, for those more experienced, includes just the two afternoon sessions.

Webinar information

An email containing a link to workshop materials, technical information and additional instructions will be sent to registered participants the day before the webinar.

Registration information

The cost for Option 1 (Basics & Operations) is $80. The cost for Option 2 (Candidate Committee Operations only) is $60.
