TWIN FALLS, Idaho (News Release) — Five seats on the Twin Falls Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors are up for election this year with terms beginning February 1, 2018.
The deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018. Four of these seats are full 3-year terms; one is a partial term that expires in 2019.
Any employee of a Chamber member business (in good standing – meaning the member is current on their annual dues payment and has no other outstanding payments due to the Chamber) is eligible to run for election to the Board.
One business member company may not have more than one person representing their company on the board. Ongoing board members represent the following companies: Cooper Norman, Reeder Flying Service, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Nu Vu Glass, St. Luke's Magic Valley & Jerome, Desert Sun Travel, Idaho Power Co., KMVT - FOX14 - THE CW, and Independent Meat Co. – meaning no additional nominee from these companies will be eligible to run in 2018.
Directors serve for a 3-year term and are responsible for the supervision of the Chamber, the direction of its work and policy making. The Board of Directors controls the Chamber's property and is responsible for the organization's finances.
The Board meets monthly and Directors also attend Chamber functions and committee meetings as needed.
If you are interested in running for one of the seats on the Board, please email Shawn Barigar firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, business name, and contact information. Self-nomination is allowed. Electronic ballots will be emailed to the voting member of each Chamber business following the close of nominations with the final vote being tallied at 5 p.m. on Jan. 31, 2018.
