Candidate Recruitment Programs
Many chambers organize candidate recruitment programs to attract knowledgeable, business-friendly candidates to run for local elected office. These programs range from informational sessions to campaign assistance. We have assembled some sample documents from chamber run candidate recruitment programs to help you launch your own program - they are available at PolicyClearinghouse.org.
