The nominating committee of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce is set to submit a list of candidates to the chamber's board of directors for approval to replace directors whose terms are expiring.
The nominating committee is chaired by Laura Varn and includes Scott Woods, Patrick Bryant, Chris Fraser, Stuart Whiteside, Bryan Derreberry, Mark Lattanzio, Melonie Hammond-Trace, Willis Cantey, Kenneth Canty, Jessica Jackson and Robby Robbins.
The committee has chosen individuals to serve three-year board terms, which will commence on Jan. 1, 2016. Those who wish to submit other names for consideration must do so by petition; those petitions must include signatures from a minimum of 100 qualified Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce members.
The deadline for nomination petitions is Nov. 13, 2015. In the event no petitions are received by the deadline, nominations will immediately close and the directors already selected by the board will be declared elected.
