MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Last month, we issued a challenge for growth-minded business executives with a passion for our community to come alongside us and lead our organization into a brighter future. Over the past several weeks, we have vetted nominations and applications; and our nominating committee presented a slate of candidates
to the Chamber board last week for their approval. I can’t think of a time that I have been more proud of our staff, volunteer leadership, and members; and I can truly say that I have never been more excited about the future of our organization and our community than I am right now.
In accordance with our organizational bylaws, the Board of Directors has approved the nomination of a slate of five candidates to fill the seats of the Directors who are concluding their Board service on December 31, 2020. The term for the new Directors will be January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2023. The incoming chairman may also make two one-year appointments to the board for 2021.
NEW DIRECTORS PROPOSED FOR 2021-2023

If you are satisfied with the slate as presented you need to do nothing further. Should you wish to nominate additional candidates, please do so in accordance with the procedures set forth in our bylaws by 5:00 p.m. Friday, August 28, 2020.
If no legitimate petition is filed within this period, the nominations shall be closed and the nominated slate of candidates shall be declared elected by the Board of Directors at their next regularly scheduled Board Meeting. Please contact me directly if you have any questions about the process.
