The Oxnard Business Outlook is an annual program of the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce. Each year we look at a different segment of the economy that is integral to our business community. In the past couple of years, we have focused on healthcare and tourism. In 2018 we are taking a look at politics and “What just happened on November 6, 2018?” A general election campaign debriefing.
Our keynote speaker for the November 16 lunch event is Dan Schnur. Dan Schnur is a Professor at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School of Communications and the University of California – Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies. He is the Director for the “California Influencers” project, a statewide program in which 60 of the state’s foremost experts in politics, policy and government discuss the 2018 campaign on a regular basis through the November election.
He has been teaching courses in politics, communications and leadership at UC-Berkeley since 1996 and at USC since 2004. Dan has also taught at the John F. Kennedy School of Government’s Institute of Politics at Harvard University and George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management. He is the founder of the USC/LA Times statewide political poll.
Previously, Dan worked on four presidential and three gubernatorial campaigns as one of California’s leading political strategists. He served as the national Director of Communications for the 2000 presidential campaign of U.S. Senator John McCain and was the chief media spokesman for California Governor Pete Wilson.
