The Nominating Committee of the South Shore Chamber of Commerce is pleased submit a slate of Officers and Directors for terms starting January 1, 2021. Under our bylaws additional names can be placed before the board through a petition bearing signatures of 75 members in good standing. Candidates will be presented to the Chamber’s Board of Directors at their November meeting.
We are suggesting a break in tradition for 2021 regarding the Chair, First Vice-Chair and Immediate Past Chair. These are normally only one-year terms. We are asking Renee McInnes, Deirdre Savage and Jim Dunphy to continue their current positions next year. The Chamber’s year is not very different than what many of our members have gone through. We have not stopped. We have made progress on several fronts and found new ways to serve members. It has been a year of quick adjustments with some projects and programs being put on hold until more normal operations can resume. To move through the remainder of the COVID era while keeping focused on our strategic plan the Executive Committee, Board and management feels it is better to keep those three positions in place for next year. We appreciate all three agreeing to that plan.
