David Keith, 2022 Chamber Board Chair said, "The Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce is pleased to provide a forum for our members and the residents of our communities to educate themselves on the candidates for office. While the Chamber does not endorse candidates, our hope is that this forum will allow the public to better understand the candidate's positions on issues that affect our communities."

The format of the forums will be similar to the forums conducted in previous years giving attendees a chance to submit their written questions to the candidates. Local citizens are strongly encouraged to attend and participate.
