We all know the frustration of trying to track the "dark money" groups that have proliferated since the Citizens United decision. But there is one place where nonprofits that don't register with the Federal Election Commission leave a paper trail: the TV stations where they buy their ads. The data can be gnarly, but the Sunlight Foundation has managed to put together a database that lets you search across the filings of more than 2,000 broadcast stations nationwide. Learn how to use this database and how it can improve your campaign reporting.

Registration is $5 NPC members; $10 public.
Bloomberg Room 9:30-11:00 a.m.
