To the editor:
It is that time of year where we seek nominations from La Mesa Chamber members to submit themselves or a fellow member to serve on the Board of Directors.
At the present time we have four 1-year terms available and two 2-year terms available. You will receive a nomination form in the mail next week, and I encourage you to give some thought to being a part of the leadership team that is guiding the business community in La Mesa and shall take part in the City of La Mesa’s 100th Anniversary celebration in a big way!
The Board of Directors meets once a month and is a policymaking board. The President and CEO serves at the will of the Board of Directors. Board meetings are held on days that the board members request and can vary from month to month. The location can also vary depending on the will of the board.
As you will see when you review the duties of a board member, the tasks are not overwhelming. However, building the La Mesa Chamber of Commerce to a solvent organization over the past four years has taken great leadership. This year we shall be adding an opportunity for our members to vote by proxy, which will encourage those that can not attend the annual elections to still have their voices heard.
So start thinking about an opportunity to serve either a 1-year term or a 2-year term on the Board of Directors and look for the official nomination form in the mail to you within the next week!
It has been my pleasure to guide this organization since May 18, 2008, and I continue to marvel at the partnerships and commitment of so many of our business owners, leaders and community. So take a moment and think about joining the Board of Directors!
My best wishes,
President & CEO,
La Mesa Chamber of Commerce
