2016 Iowa Caucus Consortium Announces Candidate Forum Series

June 5, 2015

The 2016 Iowa Caucus Consortium will host the Caucus Candidate Forum Series to allow Greater Des Moines community members and business leaders to learn about and interact with presidential candidates. The Consortium has offered the opportunity to all presidential candidates and potential candidates from both sides of the political aisle to speak at the Forum Series during the coming months.

The Consortium is pleased to announce the first event in the series. Ohio Governor John Kasich will present at the Forum Series on Wednesday, June 24 from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m at the State Historical Building. Registration is not required, but is encouraged. To register, click here.

The Caucus Candidate Forum Series will be free and open to the public. Unless otherwise noted, all Forum Series events will be held at the State Historical Building. Due to the nature of political campaigns, future forum dates, times and speakers will be announced as they are booked. Each candidate will be allotted 40 minutes to speak to the audience and then open up a question-and-answer session for 15-20 minutes. Note that free parking is available in the parking ramp on the corner of East Grand Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue.

The Caucus Candidate Forum Series is one of many efforts of the Iowa Caucus Consortium to highlight Iowa’s first in the nation Caucuses. Find more information about Consortium events and educational resources at IowaCaucus.org.
