POLICIES OF THE YORKTON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

We suggest that the Chamber begin to assemble policies dealing with, but not restricted to the following:

  • Human Resources including the qualifications, duties and limits of power of the senior staff person;
  • Designation of persons and positions authorized to speak on behalf of the Chamber in various circumstances.

The development of policies is an ongoing process, with policies to be drafted by staff or board members for adoption by the board as required.
