Dear Business Owner/Chamber Member
Oswestry Chamber of Commerce – AGM and Election of Officers for 2015/16
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday 1st April 2015 and will include a presentation about the Future of Retail by Dan Munford from Insight Research (www.insightresearch.co.uk) which will, I am sure be very interesting indeed.
The meeting will also include our Annual General Meeting and Election of Officers for 2015/16.
We are keen to encourage members old and new to get involved and contribute to the future of Oswestry Chamber of Commerce.
I shall be standing down after two years as Chairman and a number of current officers will not be standing again so the time has come for fresh eyes and ears to bring a new perspective to our business community.
Becoming involved in your Chamber as part of the Executive Committee is a great opportunity to:
Raise your profile amongst the local business community
Network with likeminded individuals
Meeting other ‘leaders’ of local organisations with opportunity to support each other
Keep a finger on the pulse of emerging issues
Get involved in the decision making processes of local political and social groups
Forge strong relationships with local press, politicians and officers
Become the voice of local business and work collectively for the good of the town as a whole
There are 10 positions available on the Executive Committee (we require only 4 elected officers to be quorate).
You can nominate yourself (or another business owner) by submitting the attached form, fully completed, along with your membership dues of £25.00 (if not already paid).
The Agenda for the meeting is available here and a copy of the statement of accounts is available to members upon request.
PLEASE NOTE – Only paid up members are eligible to vote and/or stand for election at the AGM. If you are in doubt as to whether your dues have been paid please do check.
If you have any questions or wish to discuss your nomination please feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The closing date for nominations is 5pm Friday 27th March 2015.
