In July, a nominating committee headed by Chair-elect Weymon Snuggs (Citizens Bank and Trust) will begin work to nominate 12 new directors to serve a 3-year term on the Chamber’s Board of Directors, effective January 1, 2018.

Chamber members are asked to submit their name or names of active members in good-standing who possess outstanding leadership qualities and who demographically represent the membership of the organization.

Names of individuals will be submitted to the Nominating Committee, which is charged with selecting a representative slate of 12 directors to be presented to the membership for approval by September 1, 2017.

Names of proposed Board candidates should be submitted no later than Friday, July 7, 2017 to: Cory Skeates, President, Lakeland Chamber of Commerce, P.O.

The membership of the Chamber is served by an elected 39-member Board of Directors and five ex officio members.

These dedicated volunteer leaders direct the governance of the Chamber and represent the interests of the membership.
