Board Member Election / General Membership Meeting Information

Nomination / Intent to Run Form

The Hempstead Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that the annual General Meeting is set for Monday, November 12th.  It will be held at Gazebo Park at 6:30 pm and is open to all Chamber members. 

The highlight of this meeting is the election of board members.  There are 8 total members, with 4 seats being up for election every year.  Each position is a 2 year term.  This year there is one current board member, Sherri Rumph, running for re-election and three positions without incumbents.  

If you work at or own a business that has been a member of the Chamber for at least 6 months, you are eligible to run.

Board members are required to attend a meeting on the 2nd Monday evening of the each month, usually lasting about 2 hours, and participate in the planning and implementation of the Watermelon Festival and Festival of Lights.  We also have ribbon cuttings and mixers based on the needs of our members that you will need to attend.  The Chamber is also in the planning stages of a community volunteer program which you will want to participate in.

Sounds like a lot of work?  Honestly, it can be at times.  But for those of you who are committed to improving our community and having some fun while you’re doing it, its well worth it.  There are some big projects coming up and we need dedicated, hardworking, creative individuals to get them off the ground.  This is a very rewarding volunteer position and we ask that you consider joining us to move Hempstead forward.

Please return forms by faxing them to 979.921.0599 or dropping them off at the Hotline Press office by Oct. 31, 2007.
