Given the increasingly complex web of federal, state, and local government rules governing political activity, it is imperative that elected officials, administrators, candidates, and consultants be attentive to the laws governing their behavior. Please join our team of experts as they discuss the new and challenging issues that corporations, labor organizations, trade associations, candidates and political committees need to look out for as it relates to campaign finance. The program will be followed by a riveting panel discussion on the upcoming election.

This panel includes former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, and Fred DuVal, Managing Director of Amicus Investors and Democratic nominee in the 2014 Arizona gubernatorial race. The panel will be moderated by Brahm Reznik, reporter and anchor for 12 News.

We look forward to seeing you!

If you are not able to attend due to proximity, please look for our Government Relations and Election Roadshow to be coming to a city near you.
