ABOUT THE BOARD
Board members are elected to two-year terms. Members may be elected to one-year terms to fill the unexpired term of departing board member or as is necessary to maintain balance in the number of members who are completing their term each year. No board member may serve in a voting capacity for more than seven consecutive years.
Board members frequently serve one year in an ex-officio capacity before rejoining as a voting member. The Bellevue Chamber’s fiscal year runs from September 1 to August 31.
The Bellevue Chamber Board may elect up to 60 voting members. Board members are selected to be representative of the broader business community, with an emphasis on embracing diversity among industry, company size, gender, age, experience, and culture.
