Hearings, Meetings and Workshops
The FPPC conducts a variety of meetings that ranges from the Commission's monthly hearing, opportunities for public comment, and trainings for the regulated community. Public participation is encouraged.
Every month the FPPC meets to hear and vote on enforcement matters, adopt regulations, discuss legislative and litigation reports, and update the public about what is going on at the Commission. The hearings are open to the public and time is allotted for public comment.
FPPC regulation 18308.1 established two committees, the Law and Policy Committee and the Budget and Personnel Committee. Whenever possible, committee meetings will be noticed two days prior and the public may listen to deliberations.

Interested Person Meetings: An Opportunity to Provide Public Feedback and Comment on Rulemaking
The FPPC updates its regulations, manuals and forms to address changing circumstances in California on a regular basis. When these updates happen, the FPPC will hold an Interested Persons Meeting. These meetings allow the public to provide feedback and recommendations on the FPPC rulemaking process.
Training and Outreach
The FPPC hosts multiple Training Opportunities for campaign treasurers, lobbyists, conflict of interest code reviewers, Form 700 filers, and Form 700 filing officers. These workshops are generally scheduled four months before filing deadlines, but can be held on request any time throughout the year.
