The Nomination and Selection Process

The Brandon Chamber of Commerce holds elections for its Board of Directors in May of each year.

The nominating committee is tasked with selecting, vetting, and putting forth Board of Directors candidates for the upcoming board elections each year. The nominating committee presents a slate of nominees to the membership, at which time additional nominations may be put forward. A ballot, with the names of all those nominated, are sent to members who vote for their choice of candidates. Elected candidates are officially announced at our Changeover Luncheon in early June.

The President and Executive Committee are elected by the incoming Board of Directors during its first official meeting following the election.
