Before announcing the final election results to announce our 2011 Officers and Board of Directors, I just wanted to acknowledge everyone that accepted nominations for these positions. Each and every person, by accepting a nomination, said they were willing to donate their time and efforts to help the Chamber set its course in the coming year and helping to achieve the goals that are set forth. That commitment should not go unrecognized. So, let me again point out the ten people who were nominated for Board of Director Positions: Paula Bailey, Dr. Guillermo Gallardo, Michael Grossberg, Kathi Kassover, Miriam Konigseder, Nicole LaMonda, Joyce Muller, Chris Papazian, Shelley Silver, and Paul Trause.
Whether a person won or lost is immaterial. Through membership in various committees, and having your voices heard at meetings or casual conversations, I can assure you that your participation in the Chamber (and that goes for all members) it totally invaluable.
I would encourage everyone to volunteer for the various existing committees and also for the new ones that are bound to be formed as we continue to grow.
Here are your 2011 Officers and Board of Director Members:
President: Lonnie Goldman
Vice-President, Membership: Jean Schachter
Vice-President, Events: Lou Federico
Vice-President, Publicity and Marketing: Rob Laser
Secretary: Lillian Litvack

Board of Directors: Michael Grossberg, Kathi Kassover, Joyce Muller, Chris Papazian, and Paul Trause.
A new position has been created, and will report to the Executive Board, Liaison to the Nassau County Chambers of Commerce. Shelley Silver will be our liaison.
