October 11, 2017 | By Kathy Kiely |

The homestretch of the 2018 elections is a year away, and political spending already is underway. The National Press Club Journalism Institute is presenting a fall curriculum for reporters who will be keeping readers, viewers and listeners posted on who is trying to influence the outcome.

The series, “It’s never too early to follow the money,” will be held in three separate sessions in the Club’s Bloomberg Room starting on Oct. 13.

Each session requires separate registration, found in the link below for the first session. Tickets for each are $5 for Club members and $10 for non-members.

Oct. 13: Meet the new Federal Election Commission website, 9:30 a.m. -11 a.m.

As frequent users know, things have changed dramatically this year at the FEC. This is a chance to learn the tricks and functionality of this important website from some of staffers who helped revamp it. It’s also a chance to bring your requests for old favorites you’d like to see restored.
