Chamber Seeks Interested Board Candidates

Chamber Seeks Interested Board Candidates

The Chamber is starting to plan for the organization’s leadership for 2019. The Nominating Committee is now accepting the names of any member who might have an interest in serving on the board, with a term commencing in January 2019. Consideration will be given to the length and depth of involvement with the Chamber, participation in civic activities, Northbrook residency or other ties to Northbrook, and an interest in advocating for the business community.

The Board meets monthly on the second Thursday of the month at 7:30 a.m. to discuss policy and direction for the organization. Potential candidates must be able to make a three-year commitment and are expected to actively support the Chamber goals and initiatives. Members may serve up to two three-year terms.

The Nominating Committee will review the names of candidates submitted and select a slate to fill Board vacancies, which will be announced in the November newsletter. Once the slate is determined, members can still add a name for consideration (including their own) by submitting a petition signed by 20 qualified members by Friday, November 30. A final vote on all candidates will be taken by the Board at the December 13th meeting. Anyone with questions about the nomination process, or who wishes to submit a name for consideration, should e-mail Chamber President Tensley Garris at’ type=’text/javascript’>
