Nominations are now being accepted for the Monett Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and the annual Community Service and Pride and Progress Awards.
Voting on candidates for the chamber board will take place at the annual meeting on March 8. Members will select three board members and two alternates.
Board members completing their three years of service on the chamber board are Jonathan Apostol, David Young, Cindy Stephens and Regina Bowsher. They will not be eligible for election.
Also serving on the board are incoming president Walter Branch, Rod Anderson, Doug Childress, Keith McCracken, Janell Patton, Scott Smith, Jeremy Vanderbol and Noel George.
Nominations must be received no later than Feb. 17, at which time the board will tabulate the entries and determine which names to place before the full membership.
The winners of the chamber's highest awards will be announced at the annual meeting.
The Community Service Award is given in recognition of a long history of contributions to the community that have made a significant impact on the quality of life in Monett. Nominations should be accompanied with a detailed list and a narrative supporting the honor.
The Pride and Progress Award recognizes a notable contribution to the community in a specific area and may reflect a brief but significant contribution. Past winners have been recognized for specialized efforts, including community beautification.
In 2011, Judge Michael Garrett received the Community Service Award and The Den youth center received the Pride and Progress Award.
Nomination forms are available at the chamber office at 200 E. Broadway. Nominations are due by noon on Feb. 15.
