FEC Compliance Reporting Dates

Posted by on Feb 23, 2012 | 1 comment

The FEC has posted a typically governmental reporting schedule. Fundraising shouldn’t be harder than filing your FEC Report so I thought I’d try to make the schedule at least a bit more legible. Note that you can generate your own FEC filing reports directly out of Crimson. CMDI has filed more that 7,500 FEC compliance reports so we’ve totally got you covered!

    So what? – why are all the fund raisers making a big deal of the Mar 31 deadline. Would it make a difference if they raise more or less money by the deadline? The only people winning in this election cycle are the fund raisers and the advertisers. There’s no lack of employment ooportunities there is there?
