2019 Political Forums
Your chamber is holding a series of political forums in August, at the Sliman Theatre. They are free and open to the public.
Question Committees

The chamber is in the process of establishing "Question Committees" for each forum. To serve on a Question Committee, you may not have any significant affiliation with a candidate in that particular race. No significant affiliation means no donations, no yard signs, bumper stickers, Facebook campaigns, etc. for a candidate in that particular race. Simple Facebook "likes" are not considered significant.
Let us know you'd like to serve on a committee by sending an email to janet@iberiachamber.org
We expect that each committee will meet no more than once. Meetings will most likely be August 12th-15th. Deadline for signing up for these short term committees in July 26th.

Submitting Questions

As a chamber member business, if you have a question that you would like asked to any of the groups, please send it via email to janet@iberiachamber.or g
Deadline for submitting questions is July 26th
