WASHINGTON – The Federal Election Commission will hold a one-day online seminar for membership organizations, labor organizations, and their political action committees on March 24, 2021.

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 Membership/Labor PAC Operations webinar in the afternoon, which will go into much more detail on fundraising and disclosure rules that apply to membership and labor organization PACs.

Option 2, for those with more experience, includes just the two afternoon sessions.

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

To register, visit the FEC Training Payment page on Pay.gov (the government’s secure portal for online payments). A full refund will made for all cancellations received before 5 p.m. Eastern on Friday, March 19; no refunds will be made for cancellations received after that time.

Additionally, please note that refunds of automated clearinghouse payments are not readily available.

An email containing a link to workshop materials, technical information and additional instructions will be sent to registered participants on March 23, 2021.

Please direct all questions about the webinar to [email protected] or call the FEC’s Information Division at 1-800-424-9530 (menu option 6).
