Election season is in full swing in the City of Oshawa, and that includes the Oshawa Chamber of Commerce. It’s time for the 2023 Oshawa Chamber Board of Directors Nominations!
This year we have space to elect up to six (6) directors, and we’d love to see some new blood come in to work alongside our more tenured directors in 2023.
Nominations may be filed at the Greater Oshawa Chamber of Commerce, 21 Simcoe St. S., Suite 100 Oshawa, ON L1H 4G1 commencing from September 6th, 2022 to October 21, 2022, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday. Directors will be elected for a three-year term, beginning January 1, 2023 ending December 31, 2026. All active members or a registered Chamber representative of a Chamber member in good standing are eligible to elected office.
Nomination papers and a Candidate’s Guide are available from the CEO of the Greater Oshawa Chamber of Commerce or downloaded right HERE. Signed consent to the nomination and a declaration of qualification by the candidate are required.
A Director is a part of the policy-making and governing body of the Chamber. Directors must make a reasonable effort to attend all meetings of the Board (approximately 10 per year) and to actively contribute to it. In addition, a Director may also be asked to act as a liaison to a committee’s activity.
Service as a Director carries with it the obligation to render informed judgment on the activities and methods of the Chamber and to contribute to determining its future course. The future growth, dimensions and directions of the Chamber rest in the hands of today’s Directors.
