Wayne chamber seeks nominations for board

The Wayne Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations for four new board members to help strengthen the organization.
According to a prepared release from the organization, the chamber has been working at a deficit of board members for the past three years. While the bylaws of the group allow for nine members of the board of directors, the group has been operating with only four.
There are minimum requirements for nominees for the board. The new board members must be a member in good standing of the chamber and have been a member for no less than a year.
Nominees must be able to attend monthly board meetings and attend chamber events and on occasion represent the chamber at community events. The board member will also work with the chamber officials to obtain new memberships and on introducing new resources and tools, giving chamber members the opportunity to promote business.
The nominee with the most votes will serve a three-year seat; the next two nominees will each serve two-year terms and the remaining candidate will serve a one-year term.
Interested candidates should submit their name and a brief biography to the chamber office. Nominations can be submitted by email at or delivered in person to the chamber office.
