Do you or someone you know have a heart for supporting our local, independent businesses? As we begin 2016, Vest Pocket seeks nominations for new board members. The Vest Pocket board is a working board, and the organization has a tradition of providing valuable advocacy, education, and social events for our business community.
Vest Pocket had a busy 2015, and new projects will be implemented in 2016, including a new business mentor roundtable and several business education events, as well as on-going advocacy efforts. Click here to learn more about Vest Pocket.
Multiple board positions may be filled this year, and people with finance/accounting; event planning; public outreach, fund raising, or grant writing; and management/administrative skills would help round out the current board members’ diverse backgrounds and skill sets, although business owners and people with other professional expertise and skills sets are all sought for nomination.
Board members must attend monthly board meetings and serve on at least one committee (advocacy, education, or membership), with the monthly time commitment averaging about 5 hours.
You may nominate a friend or yourself. Interviews with prospective board members will begin in February, and persons elected to the board will begin service in April 2016. For more information, or to nominate yourself or someone else to the board, please contact Vest Pocket’s current President Jon Parry at (385) 743-1394 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
