For the past two decades, the Greater Charlotte Hospitality & Tourism Alliance (HTA) and the Charlotte Chamber have teamed up to provide members of both organizations with one of the best opportunities in the Charlotte area to meet political candidates for the year’s general elections in combination with a great business networking event known as the Candidates’ Reception.

We invite you to join us for the 2018 Candidates’ Reception, which will be held at SMS Catering Atrium on 1764 Norland Road (Central Ave at Norland Road) from 4:45-6:45pm on Thursday, October 11th, 2018 (complimentary reception and free parking is provided).

More than 300 members of our business community (members of the HTA and the Charlotte Chamber) have been attending this popular event over the years. All local political candidates that will be on ballot for the 2018 General Elections will be invited to attend this reception.

To see a list of candidates for this year’s general election (which is on Tuesday, November 6th, 2018) and other important election notes and dates, please visit the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections website here

This year’s General Election in Mecklenburg County includes elections for the following: County Commissioners, NC Senate, NC House of Representatives, US House of Representatives and 3 City Bonds that include $50 million for affordable housing
