The Nominating Committee of the Board of Directors operates according to the Bylaws of the Organization.
Nominating Committee. At the regular February Board Meeting, the Chairman of the Board shall appoint a Nominating Committee composed of the Chairman of the Board-elect as Chairman and four other members
of the Chamber. The Nominating Committee shall confer with the Chairman of the Board and President/CEO to review the needs of the Chamber. In making its nominations, the Committee shall give due consideration to individual ability, interest in the Chamber, industry representation, and area
representation. In its report the committee shall confirm the fact that the nominees have given personal assurance of their willingness to accept the responsibility of serving in an active capacity as a director if elected. The Nominating Committee shall nominate one (1) person for each Director vacancy to be filled by election. In addition, any group of members may, by written petition, file additional nominees to be placed on the ballot. The written petition will contain signatures of members in good standing and the number of signatures required will be equal to or greater than five percent (5%) of the Chamber members. The petition should be delivered to the Chamber office within two weeks from the date of the Chamber Board meeting that the nominating committee’s report is approved. The entire slate of nominees will then be presented to the membership through the Chamber’s publications and the public media.
