The 2016 Elections in North Carolina: Updates, Insights, and What’s Likely to Happen in our Battleground State

Joe Stewart is the Executive Director of the NC Free Enterprise Foundation (NCFEF), a non-profit nonpartisan business-oriented organization that conducts research and analysis on candidates, campaigns, voter attitudes and demographic changes that impact North Carolina’s political landscape. NCFEF provides objective insights business leaders need to understand what’s happening in elections, and because NCFEF does not endorse candidates nor participate in campaign activities, and does not lobby for or against specific public policy proposals, the information provided is authentic and unbiased. In the course of an election cycle, Joe makes over 100 presentations to executive management teams, PAC boards, business trade associations, local Chambers, and many other business groups all across North Carolina.

Prior to coming on board at NCFEF, Joe ran his own consulting business providing corporations and trade associations assistance on issue advocacy and political engagement strategies. Joe Stewart also served as Political Director of the NC Chamber of Commerce from 2009 - 2012, and presided over the Chamber’s first-ever efforts to support pro-business candidates during the 2010 elections.

In 2010, Joe received the Business and Industry Political Action Committee (BIPAC) President’s Award for Outstanding Leadership & Service, in recognition of his work on voter registration and get-out the-vote efforts as part of his management of the NC Prosperity Project (NCP2), a nonpartisan outreach program that provides information on issues and elections to employers and employees across the State. He’s worked in government, politics, fundraising, association management, and advocacy for more than 20 years, having begun his professional career in fundraising, working in the UNC Chapel Hill Development Office while still an undergraduate. He has worked in North Carolina, Washington, DC, and Baltimore, MD.

Joe currently serves on the board the Association Executives of North Carolina (AENC) and is a member of NC Chapter of the National Federation of Independent Businesses’ (NFIB) Leadership Council; he also serves on the boards of The Hope Center, a non-profit that helps young people aging out of foster care in Wake County, NC.
