Why You Should Attend
In the wake of the 2020 elections, and in light of increased emphasis on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), corporate political activities have come under more scrutiny than in any era since Watergate. Developments in federal and state lobbying, campaign finance, and ethics rules create significant compliance challenges. If you practice in this field, it is critical to have the most up-to-date information at your fingertips. This comprehensive program, led by an expert faculty of senior officials from the Federal Election Commission, the Department of Justice, Congressional ethics committees, state ethics agencies, corporate compliance officers, and private practitioners, will walk you through the foundational law and the latest issues. From federal, state, local and foreign lobbying and pay-to-play laws, to practical strategies for developing and running an effective compliance program, the program is a must-attend for attorneys and others representing PACs, lobbyists, corporations, nonprofits, trade and membership associations, unions, politically active individuals, and others interacting with government.
