Nominations for this year's board of directors are now closed. A list of the confirmed candidates can be found below. Two executive positions were acclaimed at the February 21 luncheon. We would like to congratulate Bryce Kumka, who was acclaimed as president, and Rob Martin, who was acclaimed as second vice president.
Elections will take place on March 15, 2018. If you are a Chamber member in good standing but are unable to attend the March 15 luncheon you are still able to vote by filling out a proxy form and returning it to our office.
When making your selection, please consider the following. This year the Chamber’s Nominations committee met with each of the nominees to determine who the committee believes would provide the greatest contribution to our board as per our skills matrix. Through this interview process the committee presented five names to the board which constitute the Chamber’s slate. These are the individuals that we believe would make the best addition to our board at this time. These nominees' names have been indicated with an asterisk below.
