  • 2024 Board Nominations 2024 Board Nominations


    The current PACC Board of Directors would like to announce the Board nominees for a three-year term beginning in January 2024 (see below). The right of petition for nomination is open to qualified members of the Pickerington Area Chamber. The nominating petition must be filed with the Board of Directors within 10 days of this notice (noon October 9). The nomination form must bear the genuine signatures of at least 15 qualified Members of the Chamber (a person registered as a representative of a Member organization or an individual member). If no petition is filed within the 10-day period, the nominations shall be closed and the nominated slate of directors will be presented to the membership at the October Membership luncheon.

    In the September 14, 2023, meeting, the Board of Directors made a motion to eliminate the requirement that the slate of candidates must have one more nominee than positions available. It passed unanimously. Therefore, with no additional candidates, this would be an uncontested election and the board will approve the slate by acclimation at the October BOD meeting. The Executive Board is elected at the November BOD meeting.

    At the October 20 Quarterly Membership Luncheon [register here], the nominees will provide a quick synopsis as to what they bring to the Board of Directors.
