Chamber elects board members

December 13, 2006

Elections for four Basehor Chamber of Commerce board positions were held at last week's board meeting.

Returning chamber board members Yvonne Rosenthal, Cindy Dunn and Susan Guy were elected to three positions and newcomer Jeff Breuer was elected to the fourth position.

"I just wanted to get more involved with the chamber," Breuer said about running for the position.

Chamber board president Karin Dougherty said a nominating committee stirs interest among chamber members to run for open positions on the board. Each of the 10 board positions has a three-year term.

"We like to have more candidates than the positions we have open so our members have a choice," she said.

Basehor City Administrator Carl Slaugh also was in the running, but was not elected. Dougherty said Slaugh will remain an ex-officio board member and an important part of the chamber's efforts.
