So, what responsibilities come with being a Board Director at the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce?
The Chamber’s Board is unusual in that it’s comprised almost entirely of non-remunerated, Non-Executive Directors, with only one Executive Director of the company. Directors of Staffordshire Chambers are expected to carry out their duties to the highest standards of professionalism and integrity, bringing to the organisation wide experience, independent judgment, and critical detachment.
Essentially, the Board is concerned with the Chamber’s achievements and performance, its revenue, its expenditure and the impact that the Chamber has on its member’s ability to compete effectively in their respective marketplace. The Board delegates the day-to-day decision-making process and company management responsibilities to the Chief Executive, as these are duties critical to the continued effective operation of the business.
Fiona mentions “Increasing engagement and improving the productivity of digital marketing activities is my specialty, by helping companies communicate effectively with audiences using critical-lateral thinking and a strategic approach. I now actively contribute to the overall strategy and success of The Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce”
Directors are expected to regularly attend meetings of the Board and sub-committee to which they are appointed, together with other meetings and events where their presence could be reasonably expected. Directors are also expected to enhance their effectiveness and knowledge of the Chamber through training or other appropriate means.
The Chamber hosts over 200 events each year including speed networking, informal networking, social events, and seminars.
The role of the Board is to determine detailed strategy and future direction and to monitor operational and financial performance.
