April 7, 2010
Who should attend this seminar?
What is the schedule/program?
Are CLE credits (or continuing education credits) available?
The FEC has not applied in any state to be an official CLE (or CE) sponsor. Attendees in the past, however, have applied on their own for, and received, continuing education credits for their attendance at FEC conferences and seminars. Contact your state MCLE organization (or state board of accountancy, for accountants) for more information. Please contact us if you have further questions or need additional materials for your application.
What is the registration fee?
The registration fee is $100 per attendee. Payment is required prior to the seminar. A full refund will be made for all cancellations received before 5 p.m. EST on April 2; no refund will be made for cancellations received after that date and time.
How do I register for the conference?
After we receive your registration and payment, we will send you an e-mail to confirm your registration. If you will be unable to attend, please notify us as soon as possible by sending an e-mail to Conferences@fec.gov so that the next person on the waiting list will be able to attend.
We will include the attendee list with the notebooks provided to attendees at registration. Due to Privacy Act concerns, however, only those attendees who have signed and submitted a form granting their consent to share their contact information will be included on that list. The form will be sent to attendees in March after they registered. If you would like to ensure you share your contact information with other attendees, please submit this form by March 24.
If you are not attending the conference, or if you want to receive the attendee list before the seminar, please contact the FEC's FOIA office in the Office of General Counsel's General Law and Advice Division at 202-694-1650.
What hotel arrangements do I need to make?
The seminar will be held at the FEC's headquarters at 999 E Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20463. The FEC is located downtown in the Penn Quarter neighborhood and is walking distance from several Metro subway stations.
Attendees are responsible for making their own hotel reservations at a hotel of your choosing. Hotels that are within walking distance to the FEC are listed below in order of proximity:
Note that the FEC is providing this list of nearby hotels for the attendees' convenience; however, as a government agency, may not endorse any of them. For better rates and availability, you may wish to consider using a suburban hotel and taking public transportation into the city (see below). We recommend that you do not finalize your hotel/travel reservations until you receive confirmation of your registration from the FEC.

What should I wear?
While there is no formal dress code for our conferences and seminars, attendees typically wear business casual attire. Due to the unpredictability of the meeting room temperatures, you may want to bring a sweater or jacket.
