(Medicine Hat) Today, the Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce announced its call for nominations for its Board of Directors, with nominations being accepted from Monday, May 3 to Monday, May 31, 2021.

Each spring, the Chamber of Commerce holds an election to fill expiring or vacant positions on the Board of Directors, comprised of 12-member representatives. Directors serve a two-year term that commences following the Chamber Annual General Meeting in November of each year.

'Our Board of Directors has set an ambitious vision to serve the needs of every business in our region and to help as an essential source of information and solutions to strengthen our community as a catalyst for growth, uniting business, driving leadership and fuelling success through our connections, support and influence, stated  Marcus Campbell, Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce President. 'We are looking for dedicated, community-minded and driven leaders within our business community, who have a demonstrated ability to serve on a board and who are willing to put the time and energy into helping our organization work towards its goals.'

Successful candidates should be prepared to assist the Chamber of Commerce in accomplishing its strategic goals, be familiar with the duties of a director and be willing to contribute time to formulating and advocating on behalf of the policies related to the betterment of our business community. The Board is looking for those individuals who are aware of local, provincial and federal issues that affect our business climate and can respond to them in a reasonable, professional and discreet manner.

'Individuals who have previous board knowledge and experience will find value in contributing to an organization like the Chamber. We are seeking out those who want to assist in moving the organization's objectives forward with their time, knowledge and industry expertise', further stated Campbell. 'Our team is member-driven, community-minded, solution-focused and collaborative and we work together to ensure that our members' needs are represented, as well as reaching out to those businesses who are not yet connected into our network. As such, we are looking for individuals who can continue to build on our strength as an organization and represent our membership on our Board.'

To ensure the Chamber maintains a fair and democratic process, the Chamber encourages members to submit potential nominees, which are then elected by the membership.
