BOARD OF DIRECTORS INFORMATION
The Tahlequah Area Chamber of Commerce, hereafter referred to as TACC, is a local association promoting business, growing community, improving the economy and enhancing the quality of life in the Tahlequah area. The TACC board is comprised of 16 elected directors, 3 affiliate directors and 3 nonvoting associate directors. In addition to the board of directors we employ an executive director, tourism staff and support staff. Five of the director seats comprise the Executive Committee: President, President Elect, Past President, Treasurer and Secretary. The board of directors meets the third Tuesday of each month from 7:30 am to 9:00 am in the TACC board room located at 123 W Delaware.

DIRECTOR ELECTION PROCESS
Director candidates must be TACC members in good standing and are required to complete an application and go through an interview process with the TACC Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee completes a candidate slate, which is submitted to the entire TACC membership for input and additions. The finalized slate is submitted to the board for election with the candidates receiving the most votes winning the open seats. A meet and greet will be organized between the candidates on the final slate and the board of directors.

DIRECTOR TERMS
Terms for each elected director run for a period of three years. Directors who have completed a three-year term shall be eligible for reelection to a second three-year term, but must wait one year before seeking re-election to a third full term. Board terms begin July 1.
