Eight members of the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce have been nominated to serve a three-year term on the chamber's board of directors.
The terms will begin April 1.
More nominations may be made for the eight posts by the membership at large.
However, nominations must be accompanied with a petition signed by at least 25 members in good standing, representing 25 different chamber accounts. Those nominations would need to be delivered to the chamber by Nov. 24.
If no petition is filed nominations will be closed and the nominated slate of candidates will be elected by the board of directors at the Nov. 26 meeting.
If legal petitioned candidates are presented, the names of all candidates will be arranged on a ballot in alphabetical order and mailed to all members in good standing on Dec. 1.
Those nominated are Al Azinger, superintendent of Lawrence Public Schools; State Rep. Barbara Ballard, R-Lawrence, who is associate dean of students at Kansas University; Steven Bruner, a family practice physician; Ann Evans, executive director of the Lawrence Arts Center; Sidney Garrett, president and CEO of Brown Cargo Van Inc.; Phyllis Wertzberger McAdoo, owner of Gibson Pharmacy; Jere McElhaney, owner of McElhaney Fence Builders; Fred von Ahrens, resident manager of FMC Corp.
