Election season is once again upon us, and the Oshawa Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for our 2023 Oshawa Chamber Board of Directors Nominations.
For the coming year, we have the opportunity to elect up to seven (7) directors, and we’re eager to welcome fresh perspectives to complement our experienced directors in 2024.
Nomination submissions will be accepted at the Greater Oshawa Chamber of Commerce, located at 21 Simcoe St. S., Suite 100, Oshawa, ON L1H 4G1. The nomination period runs from October 11th, 2023, to October 27th, 2023, with submission hours between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. from Monday to Friday. The directors elected will serve a three-year term, commencing on January 1, 2024, and concluding on December 31, 2027. All active members or a registered Chamber representative of a Chamber member in good standing are eligible for elected office.
For those interested in becoming nominees, the Nomination papers and a Candidate’s Guide can be obtained directly from the CEO of the Greater Oshawa Chamber of Commerce or can be conveniently downloaded right here. Candidates must provide a signed consent to the nomination and a declaration of qualification.
A Director plays an integral role in the policymaking and governing body of the Chamber. Directors are expected to make a reasonable effort to attend all Board meetings, which occur approximately 10 times per year, and actively contribute to its proceedings. Moreover, a Director may also be called upon to act as a liaison to various committees.
Serving as a Director comes with the responsibility of making informed judgments regarding the Chamber’s activities and methods, as well as actively shaping its future direction. The Chamber’s future growth, dimensions, and directions are entrusted to the capable hands of today’s Directors.
