IMPORTANT INFORMATION, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
It is that time of year again. There are three (3) members of the Board of Directors that will be rolling off as of October 31, 2020. They are April Schick – Vice President; Jennifer Duncan and Howard Redmon. Meaning we have three open seats on the Board of Directors.
You are a "voting" member of the Chamber. Each company or contributor membership you hold gets one (1) vote when the ballots are sent out. If you are receiving this email more than once, it is because your email address is showing as primary representative for more than one active membership at the Chamber. You are allowed one vote per active membership. If you have any questions, please give us a call at (828) 625-2725.
By Sunday, October 4, 2020, we need your submissions of possible candidates to serve on the Board of Directors for the Chamber of Hickory Nut Gorge. All candidates must be active members in good standing (dues up to date) of the Chamber. The nominating committee can confirm if you have any questions.
Candidates with the following areas of expertise are needed – public relations/marketing, economic development, project management, events, and community service.
Please send your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org by email by Sunday, October 4, with the following:
