Candidate Forum - State Level

Friday, July 12, 2024 (7:45 AM - 9:15 AM) (EDT)


Meet The Candidates

Our Advocacy in Action programs support our Chamber's commitment to helping our members stay informed about community issues and advocating for a business-friendly environment. That starts with knowing who is running to represent your community.

This special Advocacy in Action program is your opportunity to meet local candidates running for office in upcoming elections. July 12 will primarily focus on state level races, while July 26 will primarily be county level races. Be sure to mark your calendar for both dates so you can stay in the know. Each candidate will have a few minutes to share more about themselves and their stances on important community issues, as well as participate in a facilitated Q&A.

We look forward to inviting you into our space for open and constructive dialogue with the candidates, ensuring you stay informed and engaged with the matters that shape our community!

If you aren't able to join us for a morning program, we encourage you to attend one of The League of Women Voters of Holland Area's Candidate Forums they are hosting in July during the evening.
