Independent Expenditures Webinar 2022 Web Header

Political committees, individuals and organizations spent more than $3.1 billion on independent expenditures during the 2019-20 election cycle. If you’d like to learn more about these unlimited express advocacy communications, please plan to attend our March 9 Independent Expenditures Webinar.

Staff from the FEC’s Information and Reports Analysis Divisions will review the rules and reporting requirements for political committees—including Super PACs and Hybrid PACs—individuals and organizations that make independent expenditures. Participants will learn the difference between independent expenditures and coordinated communications, and the consequences of making one rather than the other. We’ll also review disclaimer requirements and work through several scenarios to demonstrate how and when to report independent expenditures. Participants will be able to type questions into a chat box and get answers in real-time from the presenters and chat hosts.

Webinar information

An email containing a link to workshop materials, technical information and additional instructions will be sent to registered participants the day before the webinar.
