What is the purpose of the Candidates’ Training?

Candidates for City elective office and their treasurers must attend a training program conducted or sponsored by the Ethics Commission prior to each election in which the candidate’s name will appear on the ballot.  An individual who serves as the treasurer for more than one committee is not required to attend a training if that individual has attended such a training within the previous 12 months. (See San Francisco Campaign & Governmental Conduct Code § 1.107.)


The first part of this training will focus on campaign finance requirements that apply to all candidates.


These portions will last about half an hour and will focus on required forms for candidates for Board of Supervisors and will provide an overview of the Supervisorial Public Financing Program.

When you R.S.V.P to the Ethics Commission, please provide the names of all the people who will attend, emails, phone numbers, and the office in which the potential candidate is interested in.

San Francisco Ethics Commission
25 Van Ness Ave., Suite 220
(415) 252-3100

*An R.S.V.P. is required to aid in reducing paper waste so that the correct number of handouts are duplicated for participants.  Therefore, if you are planning to attend, please sign up no later than the dates mentioned above.
