Serving on our Board of Directors is a rewarding way to contribute to your community, build your public profile, make connections and enrich your resume!
The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce has a board of 13 people including a Past Chair, Chair, 1st Vice Chair, 2nd Vice Chair and nine (9) Directors.
There are four (4) positions on the Board that are up for election in 2022 by members of the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce. This is the Formal Call for Nominations.
All positions are for a three-year term, to begin on May 1, 2022.
Member businesses can bring forward nominations for Directors by nominating individuals that are current members in good standing of the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce. No Director shall be a person whose primary source of income is from an association, non-profit, or chamber of commerce with the exception that a non-elected employee of a business operating in the open market for economic purposes owned by an Indigenous government is deemed eligible.
Election to the Board will be determined by the candidates that receive the most votes. Ballots will be sent to all member businesses, who will receive one vote per member organization.
The choice of who is nominated or voted for is entirely up to you as a member of the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce. However, as our Governance process has a goal of representing all segments of the membership on the Board of Directors, we ask that you consider the following:
- Rural and northern geographic representation
- Representation from varying business sectors: healthcare, agriculture, legal, hospitality, retail, technology, human resources, training
- Business owners
- Previous governance board experience
