It is that time of year again where the Chamber prepares to lose four existing board members. Sarah Trivitt of West Austin Merry Maids has reached the end of her second term. Mike Coy and Elisa Pederson reached the ends of their first terms, but have elected not to be considered for a second term. Dale Miller of Austin Fine Floors is also not returning to the Board.
So How Does It Work?
The Chamber solicits nominations from the general membership. A Nominating Committee comprised of members at large and appointed by the president of the Chamber will review all the nominees and present a slate of up to eight (8) candidates to the Board of Directors for election at the November Board Meeting.
Who can be Nominated?
