See our flyer 2016 Candidates’ Forum Flyer

The AAUW Candidates’ Forum is a moderated event for non-partisan office elections.

AAUW seeks to involve the community in identifying topics of interest related to the elected office and to facilitate an environment for sharing ideas.

The purpose of the forum is to encourage the free exchange of ideas between the community and candidates.

The forum provides a chance for the candidates to hear of issues of importance to the community as well as an opportunity for the community to learn about the candidates’ position on issues.
