Nominating Committee Recommends New Board Members

In accordance with the organization bylaws, the Chamber Board Nominating Committee recently submitted its slate of new Board members and officers to the Chamber Board last month.
Serving on the Nominating Committee were: Glenn Weintraub, AA Service; Ron Goldblatt, NorthShore Loyalty & Mobile Solutions; Jason Young, Waterway Carwash; Kris Gorenberg, Ruben and Goldberg; and JJ Hart, Allstate.

The committee considered candidates to replace open spots created by the following members who will be retiring from the Board in 2018: Marty Albert, Albert & Goodman; Kris Gorenberg, Ruben and Goldberg; and Steve Margis, UL. The Committee recommended adding the following members to the board, effective January 1, 2018.

  • Ron Goldblatt, NorthShore Loyalty & Mobile Solutions
  • Arnie Krause, The Claim Company
  • Robyn Kole, Karlin, Kerschner, Sharpe & Company

The committee also made the following recommendations for the 2019 Executive Committee: Bob Caldwell, Hallmark Homecare, Board Chair; Steve Schmit, Wiss Janney Elstner & Associates, Treasurer; Glenn Weintraub, AA Service, Immediate Past Board Chair, Stephen Barr, Renaissance Chicago North Shore Hotel; and Julie Lerman, Franklin Law Group

“After being on the Board for six years, I know the importance of diversity on the Chamber Board,” comments Kris Gorenberg. “With the changing landscape of retail as well as other challenges with the Northbrook Court redevelopment, we believed Ron and Arnie will be great additions to the Board. Robyn has been a long-time supporter of the Chamber and provides valuable financial expertise,” Gorenberg added.

The committee recommended Brian Lee, new Northbrook Court General Manager, to fill the open spot vacated by Kristin Anunson.  Chamber members wishing to nominate additional candidates can submit petitions, signed by at least 20 other Chamber members, to the Chamber President prior to the next board meeting on Thursday, November 8. If no petition is filed, the nominations are closed and the slate of candidates will be declared elected by the Board of Directors at its regular December meeting.&’ type=’text/javascript’>
