Brush up campaign data skills with Federal Election Commission staff, 9:30 am April 7

March 25, 2014 | By Nicole Hoffman |

The ongoing 2014 Campaign Boot Camp program continues at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, April 7, with the Federal Election Commission staff providing a refresher on how to find disclosure data on the agency's website.

The program is free, but registration is required. The program runs from 9:30 to 11 a.m. and will be held in the Bloomberg Room.

This year's course is timed to take place a week before the filing deadline for the first of this year's quarterly disclosures of candidate contributions and expenditures.

The FEC staff will take you through the campaign map tool, the candidate/committee viewer and the variety of information in the data catalog. They also will show how to download information for more in-depth analysis.

You can follow along on your own computer. And make sure to bring your questions about searching, or glitches you have encountered.

The session is presented by the Regional Reporters Association, the National Press Club Journalism Institute and the Club's Professional Development Committee.
