Board Chair Erik Clark is heading a Leadership Transition Team that has been charged with seeking and reviewing applicants, and, ultimately making a recommendation to the full board of directors for a new president.
The position has been posted through the U.S. Chamber, Texas Association of Business and North Texas Chamber Executives Association.
Ideal traits being considered by the transition team are a minimum of 10 years executive management experience in a public entity, private business, corporate environment, or non-profit organization, preferably with a track record directly connected to volunteer-driven association dynamics.
Because of the Denton Chamber’s complex organizational structure, the transition team will take into consideration familiarity with commercial real estate and marketing trends, acumen with the hospitality industry, as well as experience and understanding of the governmental process at all levels.
Other key factors of the preferred candidate include a propensity for membership sales, and, the ability to distinguish between non-partisan and political awareness.  Leading while respecting the authority and boundaries of a volunteer board of directors is paramount to serving as the President of the Denton Chamber.
The transition team will receive resumes through October 28, 2018.  Qualified and interested applicants should submit resumes to, or Leadership Transition Team, P. O. Drawer 1719, Denton 76202.
