Candidates

Candidates Speaking Guidelines

The Lake Houston Pachyderm Club is sincerely appreciative and grateful to our elected officials and candidates for attending our meetings. Our goal is to provide you with a forum and space to address our membership and fellow citizens in a timely and organized manner. Please see below for our guidelines and outline of how we’ll organize to allow everyone a chance to speak.

  • **Please arrive no later than 6:30**

  • Our program starts at 7pm, first guests arrive at 5:30 (the earliest), and most arrive between 6 to 6:15pm.

    • Dinner and social hour is between 6 to 7pm

    • The program will start on time at 7pm, and our elected officials and candidates will speak prior to the program.

  • For those candidates & officials who sign in on the ‘candidates’ or ‘elected officials’ forms by 6:30ish and would like to speak, we'll begin at about 6:45 (or earlier, depending on the number of requests).

  • Each speaker will have roughly one minute each. The allotted time may change due to the number of speakers.

  • There will be a ‘shot clock’ to keep the time.

  • The Club will introduce each person very briefly (name, position) to save the speakers a few seconds each, so they can focus on their core message.

Thank you, & Good Luck!
