At the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 27th February, Chamber members will be asked to vote on a new executive committee. While the existing committee has worked hard on your behalf, it is crucial that Brixham Chamber of Commerce is represented well throughout the coming twelve months, especially with the proposed changes to parking infrastructure and the other challenges that we face. Now is the time to get involved and help shape the response of the business community so that we remain proactive rather than passively receive changes that could have a dramatic effect upon both our community and the fortunes of Brixham businesses.
At the AGM, we will report back to you on the various initiatives and issues that we have tackled, but in the meantime we will need nominations for the various posts on offer, including Chairperson, Vice Chair, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, Legal Representative and Secretary. These are vital positions and, if you would like to apply for one of these, or for a different executive post, you will need to complete a nomination form, get it seconded by another BCC member and return it, together with a relevant biography of not more than 350 words, for display upon the chamber website. Bear in mind that although the Chamber has a highly beneficial effect upon both our business and community fortunes it can only continue to do so if it has a strong and determined committee, for which we need more volunteers.
To this end, I have attached nomination and biography forms which, if you want to get involved – and I do seriously recommend it – need to be completed and returned to me at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. These will then be displayed on the chamber website before formal voting takes place at the Annual General Meeting on 27th February 2018 at the Berry Head Hotel.
We really need a strong executive committee for next year so please, if you feel that you can bring something to the post and can spare a couple of hours a month, make use of the forms and put yourself forward.
