The Edmonds Chamber of Commerce has opened nominations for its 2020 Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors meets from 7:30 to 9 a.m. on the third Thursday every month. As a policy board, members guide the chamber into the future, set long-term strategic goals and help identify issues the membership should support or oppose. The Edmonds Chamber is a non-political organization, so does not endorse specific political candidates. The chamber does, however, use its collective voice to speak for or against issues that will adversely affect the community and a favorable business climate.
Board members serve three-year terms, with a maximum service of three terms. Bylaws allow as many as 30 board members but there are typically fewer than 25 at any given point. In its announcement of board nominations, the chamber said it is hoping to strengthen the board representation to include a diverse cross section of the business community.
The nomination form is available on the Edmonds Chamber website at www.edmondswa.com/news or at this link. Self-nominations are open until Friday, Nov. 8. The only requirements for board service are that you or your business is an active member of the chamber and your account is in good standing.
Questions about the Edmonds Chamber, membership or the application process should be directed to Greg Urban at the Chamber office: 425-670-1496 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
