How to become involved in the leadership of KLCBT

The Kruger Lowveld Chamber of Business and Tourism (KLCBT) urges its members and other interested parties to become involved in the leadership of the organisation and will be holding elections for committee, board and tourism committee members in April.

The details of each category, how and when voting will take place and other relevant information is contained in each section below.

 

Nominations for Committee Members of the Business Section of KLCBT

Committee member elections will take place at the KLCBT’s Annual General Meeting in April 2016, when members of the KLCBT’s business section will elect 10 members to serve on the committee for a two-year term.

Business owners and chief executive officers (CEOs) or retired business owners and CEOs who are knowledgeable and well-connected are the ideal candidates. Apart from being a member of the KLCBT, there are no sponsorship or funding obligations.

Members of the committee attend one two-hour meeting a month. If they volunteer for a certain sub-committee or task team they may have to attend ad hoc meetings as and when required.

Once the committee is elected it will elect a chairperson and two vice chairpersons, who automatically become board members. It is not compulsory to avail yourself to be elected in any of these capacities.
