Call for Board Nominations
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN MAKING YOUR COMMUNITY A
BETTER PLACE TO LIVE & CONDUCT BUSINESS?
Each year there are a number of positions that must be filled on our Board of Directors, and we are currently seeking Board nominations. We are looking for dynamic individuals that can help us to continue providing business leadership through a community vision.
The Chamber provides the local business community with a vehicle to create a positive community; works closely with the municipal and regional governments; speaks for the business community at many venues; and informs and represents business.
As a Director on the Chamber’s Board, you would have the opportunity to help make the Chamber a more valuable tool for yourself and your fellow members, as well as making us more aware of the issues that all Southern Georgian Bay area businesses are facing.
The government of the Chamber, the direction of its affairs, and the control of its property is invested in the Board of Directors which consists of 9 Directors nominated and elected by the membership. Responsibilities include participation in as many Chamber activities as possible and promotion of the Chamber in a positive way throughout the community. The Board is ultimately responsible for establishing all policies on behalf of the membership. Additional responsibilities are listed on the nomination form.
If you are planning to run for the Board you will need two Chamber members to nominate you. To be eligible for nomination, you must be the voting member of a Company in good standing within the Chamber. Those elected will serve a THREE-YEAR TERM; after serving his/her first term, any Director may be elected for a second term (three years).
CONSIDER SERVING ON THE BOARD OF A VITAL ORGANIZATION THAT PROVIDES BUSINESS LEADERSHIP THROUGH A COMMUNITY VISION.
