Candidates Needed For Chamber Board


The new year will bring new board members to the Roslyn Chamber of Commerce.
Outgoing president, Rich Branciforte, claims that 2022 brought membership up from 42 to nearly 90 local businesses. To compensate for such success, the chamber needs to elect additional board members and officers.
“We are interested in hearing from any member who is interested in running to be on the board,” Branciforte wrote in a letter to fellow chamber members. “A nominating committee has been set up consisting of Melissa Spitalnick, Wayne Wink and Graciela Hall. They will pass on their recommendations for new board members to the whole board who will vote at our January Board meeting. The slate will then be offered to our general membership at our annual meeting in January for approval. There can also be nominations from the floor at the general meeting. It is a two-year term. Also, one-half of the existing board is up for renewal.
“Most important, officers are appointed annually by the board for a one-year term,” the letter continued. “There are many positions open. Anyone who is interested in being considered for an office should let us know immediately so we can pass the information on to the nominating committee.”
The following offices are available: President, Vice President Membership, Vice President Marketing, Vice President Events, Vice President Programs, Secretary, and Treasurer.
Prospective candidates can contact Branciforte at 516-233-9916.
