Seminar for nonconnected committees

March 1, 2010

On April 7, 2010, the Commission will hold a one-day seminar for nonconnected committees (i.e., PACs not sponsored by a corporation, union, trade association or incorporated membership organization) at its headquarters at 999 E Street, NW, in Washington, DC. This seminar is recommended for:

  • Treasurers of leadership PACs, partnership PACs and other nonconnected PACs;
  • Staff of the above organizations who have responsibility for compliance with federal campaign finance laws;
  • Attorneys, accountants and consultants who have clients that are nonconnected PACs or unregistered “section 527”organizations; and
  • Anyone who wants to gain in-depth knowledge of federal campaign finance laws, including the recently enacted lobbyist bundling and disclosure rules, as they apply to leadership PACs and other types of nonconnected committees.

The seminar will address issues such as fundraising and reporting, as well as the FEC’s rules on when section 527 organizations trigger federal reporting requirements. Experienced FEC staff will specifically discuss recent changes to the campaign finance law, as well as the rules specific to leadership PACs and partnership PACs.

The registration fee for this seminar is $100 per attendee. Payment by credit card is required prior to the seminar. A full refund will be made for all cancellations received before 5 p.m. EST on April 2. Complete information is available on the FEC website at, along with the seminar agenda and a list of hotels located near the FEC. Further questions about the seminar should be directed to the Information Division by phone at 800/424-9530 (press 6), or locally at 202/694-1100, or via e-mail to
