You may attend, but the content of this seminar is not tailored to your type of organization. The Commission hosts a number of webinars throughout the year tailored to various types of organizations. We also host conferences around the country, with in-depth sessions for all types of committees and organizations. To view the full list of events, please see our website at http://www.fec.gov/info/outreach.shtml.

Are CLE credits (or continuing education credits) available?

The FEC has not applied in any state to be an official CLE (or CE) sponsor. Attendees in the past, however, have applied on their own for, and received, continuing education credits for their attendance at FEC conferences and seminars. Contact your state MCLE organization (or state board of accountancy, for accountants) for more information. Please contact us if you have further questions or need additional materials for your application.

Are there workshops for beginners?

Yes. The workshop titled Basics and Best Practices provides an overview of campaign finance law that is particularly beneficial to newcomers. Beginners also benefit from the chance to network with more experienced campaign finance law professionals and share ideas with each other.

How about someone who is a seasoned veteran of campaign finance law - Does this webinar fit their needs?

Yes. The advanced workshop covers recent developments in campaign finance law. All of the workshops are updated regularly to ensure that attendees receive the very latest information. Moreover, FEC webinars offer interactive chat box capabilities for both beginners and advanced attendees to engage with each other and FEC staff members.
