The Board of Directors consists of 15 members who are respected business and community leaders, several of whom are ex-officio members who serve in an advisory and supportive capacity for the Board. The Ex-Officio members represent municipal and county governments, the local school district, and the agriculture community at large. The Board makes important policy decision and establishes annual goals for the Chamber as well as for the Chamber staff’s day-to-day operations. Staff consists of the Executive Director, Office & Membership Coordinator, and seasonal/part-time/interns.
The Board of Directors currently meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00am in the Sturgis Area Chamber of Commerce conference room, unless otherwise specified. There is no meeting in August annually.
Request for Inclusion on Agenda
All monthly Board of Directors’ meetings are open to the membership. All individuals or groups wishing action to be taken by the Board of Directors must contact the Executive Director at least one week before a Board of Director’s meeting and request the time be places on the agenda. Written background information be requested for presentation to the Board of Directors.
Non-Chamber members may request to be placed on the agenda, but must be approved by the Executive Committee prior to placement due to meeting time restraints. If the agenda does not allow for the non-member item, then a separate meeting will be established to address the issue.
The election of the Board of Directors is held annually. The elected members are determined by the majority of votes cast. Chamber members in good standing will be mailed one ballot by October 10th, and are allowed one vote per vacant seat. Please contact us for additional election details.
