The Nominating Committee of the Chamber Board of Directors is currently in the process of selecting a slate of new proposed directors to present to the membership and current Chamber Board for approval. There are six slots on the Board currently up for election this fall. Five of those selected will represent a cross section of the membership and their single four-year terms will begin January 1, 2016. The sixth slot will be the selection of someone to complete a two year term that is currently vacant due to the resignation of Randy Stone who left the community to pursue a new career opportunity.
Board members are expected to attend monthly Board meetings, serve as liaisons to other Chamber committees and attend as many Chamber functions as possible in order to stay in close contact with the membership they represent. The election process will be detailed for members in the September newsletter.
Anyone interested in serving is invited to submit a letter of interest by August 17th to the Chamber office, 360 Grand Ave., 81501. (If you have previously submitted a letter of interest there is no need to send another one unless you want to update it. Chamber staff keeps these on file from year to year). Letters should outline previous Chamber involvement, the level of leadership the interested individual holds within the Chamber member business, and how the member is uniquely qualified to fulfill the requirements of a Chamber Board member.
