If you want to engage candidates but don’t have the time to organize a candidate forum, consider inviting candidates to appear at your organization or an event you’re hosting.
Our newest factsheet covers how to ensure that candidate appearances at your nonprofit stay nonpartisan and balanced under any circumstances: whether you invite candidates to the same event, to different events, or if a candidate shows up on their own.
Not only do candidate appearances allow your clients and constituents to meet and interact with candidates, but they also expose candidates to your organization’s work. This year, the New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits has been hosting gubernatorial candidates at their various Capitol Exchange events, giving the nonprofit community a chance to converse with candidates while also bringing visibility to the state’s nonprofit sector.
