FEC to host June 10 webinar for trade association PACs (2020)

May 6, 2020
Trade Association PAC Webinar Banner

The Commission will hold its annual one-day online seminar for trade associations and their political action committees (PACs) on June 10, 2020. These interactive 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 committees; and a two-part Trade Association PAC Operations webinar in the afternoon, which will go into much more detail on fundraising and disclosure rules that apply to trade association PACs. Option 2, for those with more experience, 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 on June 9, 2020.

Registration information

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