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.
For additional information on running as a Director, please contact Bob Malcolmson, C.E.O. & General Manager at (905) 728-1683 or Geoff Michie, President at (905) 434-5036.
