Agreement to Serve
I (please enter name below) do hereby request that my name be placed in nomination by the Nominating Committee for a position as Director of the South Columbia County Chamber of Commerce for the 2018 election with results to be announced by Friday February 21, 2018.
I understand that in order to be nominated, I:
• Must be an active Chamber member in good standing.
• Must have a business interest in the South Columbia County region.
• Must sign the Agreement to Serve.
I understand that the election will be conducted according to the following procedures:
Each primary member may cast a single vote for each vacant Director position for which an unexpired term remains. The candidates receiving the greatest number of votes will serve regular, three-year terms. If positions for unexpired terms exist, candidates receiving the greatest number of votes, after the top vote-earners, shall serve for the unexpired terms, with the top vote-earner serving the longest unexpired term, and shorter unexpired terms being filled by the next and successive top vote-earners.
If elected, I understand that I will serve at no compensation. Further, I assert that if elected I am able to serve without any conflict of interest, and agree to comply with the requirements as described in the South Columbia County Chamber of Commerce Bylaws, Article IV.
I do agree to the placing of my name in nomination and will serve, if elected as a Director, to the best of my ability.
I agree to volunteer my time, my expertise and my resources, as appropriate. I agree to represent the Chamber membership in all Chamber matters, even if the Chamber membership interests are not parallel to my own.
By typing my initials in the box below, I agree to complete the items outlined in the Agreement to Serve in order for the Nominating Committee to accept my application as a candidate for the position of Director of the South Columbia County Chamber of Commerce.
