What It Means for Politically Active Businesses

7:45 am - 8:00 am   Breakfast and Registration
8:00 am - 10:00 am Program

Participation in our country's political process can be a highly effective way for a company or organization to have its voice heard and its policy positions considered by decision makers in Washington, D.C. However, with opportunities also come legal and public relations risks. These issues have come to head with the Supreme Court's recent decision in Citizens United v FEC and the controversy resulting from the decision.

Although the Citizens United decision solidified the rights of corporations to participate in the political process, corporations still need to comply with a variety of state and federal disclosure laws, and politicians are currently pursuing legislative changes to a variety of existing corporate rights and obligations. At this breakfast briefing, Larry Levy, a veteran advisor of political campaigns and corporations, and Josh Zive, who has assisted numerous corporations in compliance with political law and has served as an advocate on Capitol Hill for a wide range of entities, will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the requirements of campaign law and the opportunities for issue advocacy in the aftermath of this important Supreme Court case.

Please contact Elizabeth Charpiot if you are interested in attending.

1.75 MCLE participatory hours have been approved by the State Bar of Texas.
