Chamber Seeks Interested Board Candidates

Chamber Seeks Interested Board Candidates

The Chamber is planning for the organization’s leadership for 2016. Annually, the Chamber forms a Nominating Committee to fill Chamber Board of Director vacancies. 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. Consideration will be given to the length of involvement with the Chamber, participation in civic activities, Northbrook residency and an interest in advocating for the business community.
Potential candidates must be able to make a three year commitment and are expected to actively support the Chamber goals and initiatives. The Board meets monthly to discuss policy and direction for the organization. Members may serve up to two three-year terms.
The Committee will review the candidates 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 December 1. A final vote on all candidates will be taken by the Board at the December 10th 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 tensley@northbrookchamber.org by Friday, September 18th.&’ type=’text/javascript’>
