Twice a year Lobbyists.info in partnership with Cleta Mitchell runs an LD-203 filing bootcamp to prepare lobbyists for their filing.
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.
Part 1: The audioconference: This session engages your team in LD203 training with the nation’s leading authority on the new lobbying ethics laws, Cleta Mitchell. Every participant will learn what’s required for compliance so they can be confident filing — and signing — the LD203.
Part 2: Online assessment: Our online system makes sure each registrant reads the necessary information on the rules and compliance requirements prior to the conference. Then, after the audioconference, participants complete the YES/NO questions on the 10-Point Charter of Understanding.
Part 3: Training certification: When participants successfully complete the Charter, they receive hardcopy Certificates of Training (sent to the main registrant) that may be retained as evidence of good faith efforts at LD203 compliance.
Sign up your entire team to listen in for practical guidance on the LD-203 that can protect contributions — and lobbying careers, including:
- What your certification “under penalty of perjury” means, and how the government intends to enforce monitoring and breach
- The specific gift and travel rules for House, Senate and Executive branch “covered” officials for which you must certify your understanding
- The most likely breaches you may unknowingly have committed — and what to do before you certify to address any problems
- The supporting records you and your firm must maintain to support the certification
