This program will feature several respected election lawyers, as well as members from the Board of Elections and the Campaign Finance Board who will speak about the process by which a person who wants to run for office can do so. It will provide an overview of what is sometimes an intimidating process, break it down to basics, and provide attendees with an understanding of what is necessary to run for office in New York City.

Speakers will cover topics ranging from evaluating for which offices you are qualified to run, the mechanics of petitioning, the administrative process of filing and defending your petitions at the Board of Elections, an overview of why and how petitions wind up as the subject of court battles, and what happens when they do. There will also be information on a candidate's responsibility to comply with Campaign Finance law, and a review of best practices for setting yourself up for a successful experience with those filings.
