Chase Callahan Consulting, LLC
This month, AAPC caught up with new Individual member, Chase Callahan.
AAPC: Why did you join AAPC?
Chase: I joined AAPC because I think it would be a great tool to network with other consultants and because it shows potential clients that I am serious about my profession if I am a member of a professional organization.
AAPC: What do you love about politics?
Chase: Right now, politics in America is a changing landscape. People are becoming more and more active and vocal and looking for any means necessary to effect change for their community, state, or a particular cause. As someone who started out as a campaign volunteer and working my way up, I’ve about seen it all, and now I’m in a position to help candidates and organizations.
AAPC: Why is being part of a bipartisan organization valuable to you?
Chase: Simply put, without bipartisanship, nothing will never get done. We need to work together to effect the best outcome for our causes.
AAPC: What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?
Chase: When I first got started, the best advice was “Volunteer for every single position on campaign” so that I could experience that and know how to proceed in the future. Now, since I’ve started my own business, the best advice I’ve been given is always be honest in any assessment – don’t give a candidate false hope.
AAPC: Where do you go when you need to be inspired?
Chase: For me, inspiration comes from something as simple as the art of brewing and pouring the perfect cup of tea – for that, I don’t have to go much further than my own kitchen.
AAPC: What’s next for you in 2018?
Chase: Continue to get my name out there and build my business. Fortunately, I have two past clients who are now serving in elected office and they are my biggest cheerleaders. At age 19, Councilman Lindemann became the youngest elected official in the State of Mississippi and he turned a solid red city council seat blue. My other client is State Representative Tom Miles. When Rep Miles ran for re-election, his district had been redrawn to favor a Republican candidate and we managed to pull off an impressive win.
