The Commission will hold a one-day online seminar for trade associations and their political action committees (PACs) on Wednesday, April 26, 2017. Commission staff will conduct several technical workshops on the federal campaign finance laws affecting trade associations and their PACs. 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 for the morning session, Basics and Best Practices or Recent Developments in the Law. The afternoon will feature a two-part workshop on Trade Association PAC operations. Participants will be able to download electronic copies of the workshop materials in advance, and will receive additional instructions and technical information shortly before the event.
