The chamber will hold their official elections for their Annual Business Awards and select their new board of director candidates starting October 11th, 2021. Based on the results from the memberships' recent nominations, which can be viewed here. The opportunitiy for our membership to cast their votes ends on October 26th by 11:59am. All eligible members will receive links in their email's inbox to participate in the voting process. The number of votes a business receives depends on the size of their membership investment. Votes are calculated as follows:
- Individual membership - 1 vote
- Small business - 1 vote
- Business - 2 votes
- Major - 2 votes
If a business receives 2 votes, they will receive 2 emails with 2 different voter portal links.
All ballot submissions are sent electronically, collected and tallied by our chamber's Executive Director along with the appointed Election Committee members. All Election Committee members are appointed by the President and have to be a current chamber member who is NOT currently serving on the board of directors and who is NOT eligible or has no interest in serving on the governing board of directors for the chamber. The committee is made up of no less than 3 members and will remain anonymous until the winners have been announced.
If you are a member who didn't receive their ballot, or have had issues with their electronic ballot please contact Leslie Merritt at the chamber's office by calling 405-598-8666 or 405-287-4082.
Good luck to all our nominees this year!
