Chamber of Commerce seeking board nominations


The Saratoga/Platte Valley Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations from its membership for positions on the nine-member board of directors, Executive Directory Stacy Crimmins announced Monday.

Jennifer Archibald, John Farr and Alyson Sneddon’s terms are expiring this year, Crimmins said. Sneddon has expressed an interest in serving for another three years and will be added to the ballot.

Chamber board members meet monthly and promote the mission and purpose of the Chamber of Commerce, which includes promoting a community where its business members can grow and succeed.

“Fulfilling this mission is definitely challenging but also very rewarding,” Crimmins said.

Crimmins credited the work of the people who have volunteered to serve on the board for the success of the chamber. “I believe the Chamber has accomplished great things in the past few years, and much of its success is due to the great people who have volunteered their time to serve on the board of directors.”

Responsibilities of board members include establishing the mission with policies and objectives, exercising financial stewardship, ensuring that legal and ethical policies are adopted and followed and assessing its executive director’s performance.

Board members advocate for the organizations and small businesses.

“It’s amazing what people can do when they have a common goal,” current vice president Addie Fletcher said.

To be eligible for the chamber board, the applicant must be a member of the chamber, either as a business/owner manager, or as an employee of a business member.

“It is ideal to have a cross section of the business community on your chamber board,” Crimmins said. “That ensures that the membership is well represented.”

Board members volunteer about five hours per month and also help with chamber-sponsored events and activities.

Crimmins said she encourages anyone who is interested in serving on the board to visit with a current chamber member.
