Political Law Webinar Series: Fundraising in the 2020 Campaign

Holland & Knight Webinar
CLE Available, Webinar
March 5, 2019
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET

Please join members of Holland & Knight's Political Law Team for the second installment of our Political Law Series, "Fundraising in the 2020 Campaign."

The 2020 election promises to set new records for the amount of money raised. President Donald Trump already has raised more than $100 million for his re-election campaign, and a broad swath of Democrats are lining up to run against him. Companies in all industry sectors are likely to be confronted with employees (including senior executives) who are giving more – and raising more – in political contributions than they ever have before. This avalanche of money and upsurge in political activity could create a host of new compliance and risk management issues for corporations, particularly financial institutions.

Our attorneys will walk you through what you need to know about political fundraising and provide practical guidance on how to ensure that your company avoids legal violations and stays out of the headlines.

Topics include:

  • building a political activity compliance program capable of addressing the rapidly changing landscape of political donations and fundraising, including a discussion of what you need to know about Super PACs, 501(c)(4) organizations and joint fundraising committees
  • understanding how executives' and employees' personal fundraising activities can create legal and reputational issues for your company, including a review of federal, state and local pay-to-play rules
  • rules of the road for hosting events with candidates and officials, including meet-and-greets, campaign events and on-site fundraising

We hope you will be able to join us for this highly informative presentation.
