The LD-203 Filing Boot Camp: Mid Year 2019 Edition

Webinar • Tuesday, June 18, 2019 • 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET | Qualifies for 1.5 CAE credits


By July 30, 2019 all federally registered lobbyists and lobbying entities must file, sign and certify their LD 203 (Mid Year) Contributions Report. Are YOU confident that you already know all you need to know? The deadline will be here before you know it.

Certifying your ethical conduct means understanding complex and slightly differing rules for the House and Senate. It means knowing for sure that you've got all the right supporting records for the LD-203, and it means being able to demonstrate that you've made good faith efforts to educate employees to ensure compliance.  Participating in this webinar is evidence of that good faith effort.

Reserve your space now for the LD-203 Filing Boot Camp. This three-part program ensures that you and your entire staff will come away confident that you understand the rules of ethical conduct for lobbyists and non-lobbying personnel alike.

Sign up your entire team to listen in for practical guidance on the LD-203, including:

  • What must be reported on your LD-203
  • What your certification "under penalty of perjury" means, and how the government intends to enforce monitoring and breaches
  • The specific gift and travel rules for the House and Senate, that you must certify you understand and abide by
  • The most likely breaches you may encounter and how to address any problems before you certify
  • The supporting records you and your firm must maintain to support the certification

Register now and file your LD-203s without triggering severe penalties. Plus, benefit from maintaining a current Certificate of Training that can be valuable in case of a GAO audit.
