Date & Time: Tuesday, October 28, 2014 from 6:00 pm to 9:15 pm

CLE Credit: Yes

Event Description
3.0 Credit Hours

Attend this course to receive a practical guide to the laws and rules governing lobbying of the federal government and feder­al officials. The class will include an update on revised OMB Guidance on lobbyist service on advisory committees that was issued August 13. Since the enactment of the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act, the disclosures that must be made about federal lobbying activities have become more com­plex. Additionally, enforcement of the lobby­ing rules and related gift and travel restrictions is rising, making it critical that attorneys know how to counsel their clients on compliance. Our faculty expert will give you a clear understanding of who has to register as a lobbyist, and how these individuals and their employers can meet the resulting compliance obligations. You will learn about the lobbying registration process and the quarterly and semi-annual reports that must be submitted. Discover what must be tracked to fulfill reporting obligations and take away practice tips that will help you or your clients meet those obligations. You will walk away from this class with resources to help you deal with a range of lobbying compliance questions and issues. Anyone who counsels or represents clients on public policy issues, whose clients engage in such matters, or whose clients seek government contracts and grants should attend this course.
