The West Seneca Chamber of Commerce will be accepting nominations through 9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 8, from West Seneca Chamber of Commerce members interested in serving on the organization’s Board of Directors.
Seats for six board positions will be available. Directors Emily Melski and Linda Perry have completed six years of dedicated service to the board and must now step down per Chamber bylaws, while directors Brian Hillery and Robert Merkle are stepping down due to job relocations. Director Zach Armstrong and interim director Cherie Messore are both seeking re-election.
Board members serve on a volunteer basis and are asked to attend a monthly board meeting and assist with various Chamber events throughout the year. Nominees must be West Seneca Chamber of Commerce members in good standing, and self-nomination is not only allowed but encouraged. All nominations found to be valid are then voted on by current Chamber members by mailed ballot. All ballots remain sealed until a specified time when they are opened under the watchful eye of a respected local “inspector” unaffiliated with the Chamber. The length of term is three years.
If you would like more information on the West Seneca Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors or the nomination and election process, please call the Chamber at 674-4900 or visit the Chamber office in the Community Center & Library at 1300 Union Road.
