Association of Political Consultants - Africa

The Association of Political Consultants – Africa (APCA) is a network dedicated to professionalizing the field of political consulting across the continent and promoting good governance, free and fair elections and the empowerment of women and young people. Each year, we bring together political consultants, media & communication consultants, pollsters, campaign managers, public affairs professionals, fund-raisers, politicians and lobbyists from across Africa to discuss new strategies, technologies and best practices for our industry. The inaugural Africa Political Summit was held in Cape Town, South Africa at the beginning of 2016 and was so successful that a second Summit was held in Lagos- Nigeria and third in Nairobi – Kenya.

From September 9 – 12, 2019, APCA will hold its 4rd annual Africa Political Summit in Skylight Hotel-Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This event will attract elected officials and public affairs professionals from Africa and across the globe. Our attendees are the decision makers and advisors who have been instrumental in the elections of countless political leaders across the continent. The theme for this year’s event is Campaign Financing and Elections in Africa.
