Dear Chamber Members:
The Nominating Committee of the Franklin Chamber of Commerce is seeking talented and conscientious volunteer board members to lead and strengthen our Chamber. We are looking for board members who believe in our mission and are willing to be active in their governance role. We believe that this work has never been more important than it is today, as the next several years promise to be exciting ones for Chamber.
Given your long-standing support of this organization and involvement in our community, we would like for you to consider becoming a part of our team by serving on the Board and request that you give serious consideration to nomination for a board position. One year, two year, and three year board terms will be available beginning in June 1, your appointment would begin after the May 18, 2017 Annual meeting.
A primary responsibility of board directors is to participate in the development of policy and major decision-making at board meetings held monthly. Another key responsibility is to be active on an ongoing basis in a committee of the board. This year, board nominees will be asked to make that committee commitment before they are voted onto the board.
If you can share your experience and expertise to make Franklin a better place to work and play, please consider becoming a nominee by providing a short bio and intent statement. Your statement should include your vision for the chamber and how you will support that vision.
Nomination must be received by 5pm Friday, May 5, 2017. Correspondence can be emailed (firstname.lastname@example.org), mailed or dropped off in the Chamber office.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Chamber office.
Thank you for your consideration,
2017 Nominating Committee
