We present the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce's Candidate Academy, which is intended to encourage civic participation in the electoral process in the South County region of the Orange County community.
The Candidate Academy will educate, inform and prepare potential candidates thinking of running or are going to run for an elected position. This could be school board, water boards, City Council, etc. on the realities of running for and serving in public office. This nonpartisan seminar series will provide a wealth of training and resources and allow participants to interact with businesses and civic leaders.
