WASHINGTON — The Federal Election Commission is hosting a webinar for first-time candidates, potential candidates, their campaign committees and staff on Wednesday, Aug. 30 at 1 p.m.

The Zoom webinar is intended to provide the aforementioned attendees with an introduction to campaign finance laws and regulations that apply to federal candidates and campaigns ahead of the 2024 election.

Among the topics that will be covered during the live, two-hour training event are candidate registration, treasurer responsibilities, contribution limits, prohibitions and reporting requirements.

Participants will be able to interact with presenters and get real-time answers to their campaign finance questions.

The registration fee is $20. To register, visit the FEC Training Payment page on Pay.gov (the government’s secure portal for online payments). 

An email containing a link to workshop materials and log-in instructions will be sent to registered participants on Aug. 29. 

The FEC said it will provide all attendees with a letter certifying participation, which participants can use to independently apply for CLE or other credits. 

Anyone with further questions about educational credits should contact the agency at: [email protected].
