To meet demand, the Commission is adding a second Independent Expenditures Webinar on Wednesday, March 16.
During this two-hour training event, staff from the FEC’s Information and Reports Analysis Divisions will review the rules and reporting requirements for political committees—including Super PACs and Hybrid PACs—individuals and organizations that make independent expenditures. Participants will learn the difference between independent expenditures and coordinated communications, and the consequences of making one rather than the other. We’ll also review disclaimer requirements and work through several scenarios to demonstrate how and when to report independent expenditures. Participants will be able to respond to polls, ask questions, and get answers in real-time from the presenters.
The webinar will take place via Zoom. An email containing a link to workshop materials, technical information and additional instructions will be sent to registered participants the day before the webinar.
