Chamber of Commerce to Hold Fort Bend Candidates Academy

FORT BEND COUNTY (Covering Fort Bend News) – The Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce has created an in-depth program for community members focusing on personal and political preparation for a future career as an elected official and community leader.

This two-part program provides the opportunity to learn and interact with former politicians and community leaders as well as prominent campaign executives. Free from political affiliations, the Fort Bend Candidates Academy provides a comprehensive learning environment where potential candidates for elected office, as well as those interested in the process, can learn the key components of a political campaign.

Ideal attendees for the Candidates Academy are individuals who are looking to become more politically active. Current candidates and campaign staff involved at any level should also attend. Newly elected Fort Bend County Judge KP George completed the 2018 program and said, “I enjoyed participating in the Candidates Academy. The program is a helpful resource in running a modern campaign in Texas.”

The two-part program includes:

March 22 – The Internal Campaign and External Alignment | The basics of your political journey towards a campaign and the main execution components of a campaign.

March 29 – Compliance, Fundraising and Localization | Key issues in developing an ethically and legally responsible campaign and issues focused on running a campaign in Fort Bend County.

Christopher Hill of 180 Messaging and Fort Bend Chamber Governmental Relations Division Chair Christopher Breaux of Whitley Penn will facilitate the program.
