The D.C. Office of Campaign Finance (OCF) will conduct informal training seminars throughout calendar year 2021 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.
All Training Seminars are conducted virtually due to Mayor Bowser’s declaration of the city-wide health emergency known as COVID-19. To register to attend a seminar, please contact Wesley Williams, Public Affairs Manager, at (202) 671-0551 or email at [email protected]
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.
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, please contact Wesley Williams, Public Affairs Manager, at (202) 671-0551 or email at [email protected]
