EDSA SHANGRI-LA HOTEL, MANDALUYONG CITY, PHILIPPINES
Pursuant to Republic Act 7166 and COMELEC Resolution 9476 with the strict implementation of COMELEC for the 2013 elections, all winning and losing candidates both local and national, as well as all political parties must file their Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE) within 30 days after the election. Non- compliance for candidates means that one cannot assume their elective post and with fines up to P60,000 as well as perpetual disqualification from holding an elective post.

You prepare not after the election given that there are finance campaign regulations that you have to strictly comply with that can cause your disqualification from running for office. In this one-day, one-time-only seminar, we will teach you how to prepare the 11 forms required for SOCE. We will clarify officially what are the lawful and unlawful campaign paraphernalia, and the limits of expense, time and space for political ads such as billboards, streamers, movies, documentaries, radio, TV, newspaper, and other social media that will all need to be reflected in your SOCE. Learn all these in this comprehensive seminar including valuable advice, tips, and insights on how the COMELEC will counter-check and catch violations.
