Looking to make a difference in our community? Consider joining the POBCOC board of directors. Five seats will be on this year’s election ballot at the May membership meeting on the 17th.

You will also be expected to assume committee chair positions.

The Board currently consists of 15 members, each with a three-year term.  The election will take place at the Mid-Island Y JCC, and each nominee will have an opportunity to address the membership. Officers of the Chamber will be elected at the next ensuing Board meeting.
