The D.C. Office of Campaign Finance (OCF) will conduct informal training seminars throughout calendar year 2020 for candidates for elective office, officers of political committees, including political action committees, independent expenditures committees, constituent services programs, legal defense
committees, transition committees, inaugural committees, and statehood funds. Please note that attendance at any of these sessions does not satisfy the attendance requirement for candidates and treasurers at the mandatory Entrance Conference.
The Training Seminars are designed to assist participants in understanding and complying with the “Campaign Finance Reform and Transparency Amendment Act of 2013” and the Fair Elections Amendment Act of 2018 and implementing regulations. Sessions will be facilitated by a member of the agency’s Office of the General Counsel (OGC) and supported staffers of OCF’s Reports Analysis and Audit Division (RAAD) and Public Information and Records Management (PIRM) Division.
OCF Webinar training will be conducted the first Tuesday of each month from 11:00 AM -12 noon. Various other training sessions are 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 sessions occur 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.
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.
All Training Seminars are conducted at the Office of Campaign Finance located at 1150 Half Street, SE Suite 775 Washington, DC 20003. To register to attend a seminar, please contact the Office of the General Counsel at (202) 671-0554
