Holiday Inn Tampa Westshore Airport


We invite you to join us as we hear from candidates running for office in the upcoming 2018 election.  This bi-annual, non-partisan event invites candidates from local, regional, state and national races to share with us their qualifications and positions on issues important to their campaign. 


      Forum Rules     


     Each candidate will have two-three minutes to explain her/his qualifications and positions on issues.  Time limits are set based on the number of candidates participating and will be confirmed when the Forum begins.

    The Timekeeper will indicate when 15 seconds of time remains. All candidates are requested to conclude your remarks within those 15 seconds.

    A bell will signal the end of the time allotment and we request all candidates honor the time limit.

    Candidates wishing to participate in the timed presentation must register as a Participating Candidate and remit the $40 registration fee no later than July 31, 2018.  Any participation by walk-in candidates will be based on time and space restrictions and is subject to a late registration fee.

    All participating and non-participating candidates are invited to network with event attendees before and after the event.



Tampa Bay BPW invites candidates for all local races to this event based on the ballot and contact information on file with the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections office.  If you would like to hear from candidates in other races impacting the Tampa Bay Community or would like additional information regarding this event, please contact our Program Chair, Celia Petters, at 813.263.6521.


At Tampa Bay BPW, our meetings always include valuable networking opportunities.  Register today to join us for this thought-provoking and inspiring event!  



Note: Special meals may be available upon advance request.
