Recording the Forum:
The forum will be recorded for those that cannot attend and posted afterward on the SMMC YouTube Channel and the Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber Facebook page

Get Your Questions Answered- Send them Early:
To submit your questions, e-mail them to Cory King at as he will be moderating the event. 
Questions need to be received at least ONE DAY PRIOR to the event for consideration.  Simply put "Forum Question" in your e-mail subject line

Forum Format:

Welcome, Ground Rules & Opening Statements, 12:00-12:15:
After an introduction from the moderator (Cory King, SMMC Executive Director) we will give each candidate 3:00 minutes for an opening statement.  

Q & A, 12:15-12:50:
Questions, submitted by viewers prior to the forum or in the chat, will be read by the moderator.  Each candidate will get 1:30 to comment on the question and we will rotate who gets a chance to answer first with each question.  Following everyone’s answer we will give any candidate 30 seconds to “respond further” on any question (or to use as a rebuttal).  Then we will move to the next question.

- There will be no direct questions from the public, all questions will come from the moderator and the pre-submitted questions.  

 - As we get close to 12:50 we may cut the answer period for a question down to try and get a final question in.  For example, if it’s 12:45 we may say, please limit your answers to 60 seconds and 15 second “respond further”. 

Closing Statements 12:50-1:00PM
Each candidate will get 2:00 minutes for a closing statement and the moderator will thank the viewers and Chamber sponsors.  Candidate closing statements should include the best way to contact them for more information.

Recording: We WILL be recording this for distribution on the SMMC Facebook page, YouTube channel and possibly local cable access.
