The D.C. Office of Campaign Finance (OCF) will conduct informal Training Seminars throughout calendar year 2017 for candidates for elective office; officers of political committees, political action committees, independent expenditure committees, and constituent service programs. All training includes the revisions of the Campaign Finance Act that became effective on January 31, 2015.
The Training Seminars are designed to assist participants in understanding and complying with the “Campaign Finance Reform and Transparency Amendment Act of 2013”, and its implementing regulations. Sessions will be facilitated by a member of the agency’s Office of the General Counsel (OGC) and supported by staffers of OCF’s Reports Analysis and Audit Division (RAAD) and Public Information and Records Management (PIRM) Division.
Training is scheduled on selected Thursdays of each month from 12:00 noon until 1:00 p.m. Participants are invited to bring their lunch, as the session occurs during the lunch hour. Although the agenda for each session is pre-determined, the facilitator may deviate from the stated content to address specific concerns of participants.
Individualized training may be arranged for Statehood Funds, Legal Defense Committees, Transition Committees and Inaugural Committees by special request of the General Counsel, who will attempt to accommodate the request in a timely manner.
All Training Seminars are conducted in the Library of the Office of Campaign Finance located at 2000-14th Street, N.W., Suite 433, Washington, D.C. 20009. To register to attend a seminar, please contact the Office of the General Counsel at (202) 671-0554
