The D.C. Office of Campaign Finance (OCF) will conduct informal training seminars throughout Calendar Year 2022 for candidates for elective office, and the treasurers and officers of political committees, including political action committees, independent expenditure committees, constituent services programs, legal defense committees, transition committees, inaugural committees, and Statehood funds programs. Please note that attendance at any of these sessions will not satisfy the attendance requirement for candidates and treasurers at the mandatory OCF Entrance Conference.
Until further Notice, all Training Seminars will be conducted virtually at the OCF Website, www.ocf.dc.gov, pursuant to Mayor Bowser’s declaration of the city-wide health emergency known as COVID-19. To register to attend a seminar, please email the Public Information and Records Management Division at [email protected] or the Office of the General Counsel at (202) 671-0551.
The Training Seminars are designed to assist participants in understanding and complying with the “Campaign Finance Reform and Transparency Amendment Act of 2013”, as amended, and the Fair Elections Amendment Act of 2018, and implementing regulations. Sessions will be facilitated by the Agency’s Office of the General Counsel and supported by the OCF’s Reports Analysis and Audit Division (RAAD), the Public Information and Records Management (PIRM) Division, and the Fair Elections Program Division.
The OCF Training will be conducted on selected Wednesdays of each month from 12:00 noon until 1:00 p.m. Although the agenda for each session is pre-determined, the facilitator may deviate from the stated content to address specific concerns of participants. If the need should arise for immediate, individualized training, you may make a special request of the General Counsel, who will attempt to accommodate the request in a timely manner.
