WHAT IS EXPECTED OF DIRECTORS?

Any board director shall be a member in good standing for a minimum of two years, free of any conflict of interest and be willing and able to attend board meetings. In addition, it is highly desirable that candidates should be able to demonstrate a familiarity with the Chamber of Commerce’s activities and a level of involvement that demonstrates an ongoing commitment to the Chamber of Commerce’s goals and objectives. 

We encourage nominees to attend any of the Chamber’s external committee meetings to gain knowledge and experience of the Chamber’s role prior to becoming involved on the Board of Directors. 

Current involvement in a Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce committee or a task group is an excellent way for a candidate to gain experience and demonstrate commitment. In addition, the Board recognizes that to be effective it should represent as broad a range of industries and competencies and have the ability to provide worthwhile input to municipal, provincial and federal regulators on a variety of issues.

In order to provide you with insight regarding the responsibilities and commitments of an individual member of the Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, we are providing you with information on the responsibilities of Directors of the Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce within this package.
