The committee will consider the following when reviewing applications: length in YPCV, participation in YPCV events, business, why the person wishes to serve on the committee and what they will bring to the committee.
The committee meets on the second Thursday of each month from noon-1 pm at the Chamber office. Committee members are expected to attend 50% of the meetings and 6 YPCV events throughout the year. Please take this time commitment into consideration when applying.
The committee term limit will be 4 years and these terms will begin on April 1, 2017 for the new committee members. Applicants will be notified by March 11th.
