Preparing for 2016:
Election Law Compliance and Campaign Finance Rules and Regulations
Recorded on November 12, 2015



With the 2016 election cycle in full swing, your association, corporation or firm may be wondering how you can best position your organization with candidates and campaigns. Before you take steps toward election-related activity, you want to be sure you understand how today’s election laws and campaign finance rules and regulations apply to everything from donations to endorsements.

For example, do you know when campaigning on behalf of candidates violates the law? Or what PACs can and can’t do? Or how to stay compliant when a candidate wants to tour your facility or asks you to invite members or employees to events?

Even little missteps can have major legal and public relations consequences. Here’s the guidance you need to avoid compliance pitfalls between now and the 2016 elections.
