Chamber looking to fill seat
Saratoga/Platte Valley Chamber of Commerce accepting nominations or letters of interest for open seat on Board of Directors
July 15, 2020
The Saratoga/Platte Valley Chamber of Commerce (S/PVCC) is seeking nominations from its membership for a position on the nine-member Board of Directors. There is one open seat that expires in February 2022.
Members of the Chamber Board are expected to establish the mission of the Chamber with policies and objectives. They should also exercise financial stewardship and ensure that legal and ethical policies are adopted and followed. The board is also charged with assessing its own performance as well as that of the CEO. Board members are also asked to advocate for the organization and small business to ultimately ensure success and provide continuity for the organization.
To be eligible to serve on the board, one must be a member of the chamber either as a business owner or manager, or as an employee of a business member. An individual person can also be an associate member and thereby be eligible to serve. Board members volunteer about five hours per month in addition to helping with sponsored events and activities.
The vision for the S/PVCC is to be the “go-to” center for businesses and visitors in the Valley. The chamber’s vision is to be viewed as a trusted, informative and well-represented organization that is in touch with the Valley. Finally, the mission of the chamber is to serve the Valley businesses and visitors to enhance the area’s economic vibrancy.
