EDB welcomes new board members

The EDB is pleased to welcome several new members to its board of directors.

Kudos to Nominations Committee members for their hard work and diligence: Jackie Flowers and Herb Simon (co-chairs), Don Clark, Bruce Dammeier, Ivan Harrell, Bett Lucas, Daniel Smith and EDB Vice President of Recruitment Sarah Bonds who staffs the committee.

Bigger and better

Based on the committee’s recommendation, the board approved an amendment to the EDB’s bylaws that adds two new board seats designated for small business owners.

“The Nominations Committee is committed to continuing our work to bring the EDB’s board membership closer to the demographics of our region,” said EDB President Bruce Kendall. “They brought forward an excellent slate of candidates.”

New board members include:
