While much focus has been put on proposed adjustments to the regulatory regime through policy initiatives\, little attention has been paid toward improving the existing processes of compliance and law enforcement.Learn about the core issues causing this trust to erode and hear from the former Federal Elections Commission (FEC) chair and other political experts on the future of political financing – hosted by BlockApps and Schweitzer Labs. \nPanelists\nWill Schweitzer (Founder & CEO\, Schweitzer Laboratories and 4US)\nAnn Ravel (Former Chair of FEC\, Commentator)\nAlex Voetsch (Partner at Millennial Strategies\, Commentator\, Democrat)\nBrad Gentile (CEO\, HillEast Group\, Commentator\, Republican)\nRSVPAgenda (1 hour)\nCurrent state of campaign finance compliance\n2.

Dempsey\, “no time for spectators.” \nJoin me\, Ann Ravel\, Brad Gentile\, Alex Voetsch and BlockApps as we discuss how #4US (“for us”) fundamentally alters and improves #campaignfinance operations through #automation\, #compliance and #transparency. \nThis will be the first of many public conversations we host to share how 4US works and how it restores trust and confidence in our campaign finance system\, thereby restoring trust in confidence in our democracy as a whole. \nIn this conversation we will discuss the practical challenges political #campaigns on both sides of the isle face when meeting their compliance burdens\, as well as the challenges campaign finance #regulators deal with in overseeing them and administering law enforcement activities. \nWe’ll highlight the fundamental technical components at play within 4US that make these challenges disappear\, and pivot into how these processes restore the bonds of trust between citizens and our elected officials. \nPlease join us\, and share this invitation with anyone who cares about the future of our nation and democracy. \nWill Schweitzer\, Schweitzer Labs\, 4USGet the answers you needCan’t Wait?More on political and financial compliance with blockchainBlockApps2020-10-20T17:10:01-04:00\n\n\n \n \n \n \n \n \n\n \n\n \n\nDocument ManagerAll STRATO Apps\, Finance\, HR / ProcurementThe STRATO Document Manager empowers businesses to share documents\, track its versions\, and verify the authenticity of each version in real-time.\n\n\n\nA tamper-proof record of all these events and more is stored on a STRATO blockchain ledger and managed using cutting-edge Private Chains.

These conditions inherently create opacity and inefficiency\, with a dangerous ripple effect.

Additionally\, the lack of standardisation across systems creates a huge amount of duplication.
