2020 Board of Directors
Nominations

Under GNCC’s by-laws, the Nominating Committee is responsible and required to recommend the best qualified candidates who can fill any vacancies with the Board of Directors.

If you are qualified in a certain area that can benefit GNCC, we encourage you to join the Board of Directors. Any Member of GNCC who is interested (and who meets the criteria) may apply. Joining the Board of Directors is a great way to make a difference in your community.

Each year, the Board assesses the strengths of the current Board and provides direction to the Nominating Committee as to which areas of expertise should be priorities for the upcoming election. Specific areas of expertise for the 2020 nominations include skills and expertise in: Agri-business; Transportation/Warehousing/Logistics; Commercial or Residential building development; Manufacturing; Medium to large organization; or policy advocacy experience.

Diversity & Inclusiveness

GNCC recognizes and embraces the benefits of diversity in Board members. A truly diverse Board will include and make good use of differences in the skills, regional and industry experience, background, race, gender and other attributes of Directors. These differences will be taken into account in determining the optimum composition of the Board. Board members who are recommended for election will be based on those best qualified while taking into account broad diversity required to represent our membership of today and tomorrow.
