You are cordially invited to the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Membership of the Southwest Veterans Chamber of Commerce on January 5, 2017 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm at Paradise Valley Community College 18401 N. 32nd St., Phoenix, AZ 85032. The meeting will be held in Kranitz Student Center (KSC 1000A), located adjacent to the President’s and Administrative offices.

The primary purpose of this meeting is to present the Annual Report to the Membership as required by the Bylaws. Additionally, we will conduct one item of official business: approve the minutes of the 2016 meeting.  A copy of the draft minutes is enclosed. We will also have a number of raffle prizes available.

We hope that you can attend this important meeting and let your voice be heard. We also want to hear from you what you would like the Chamber to do to assist you in growing or improving your business. If you cannot attend in person, we request that you assign your voting rights on the enclosed proxy. There are two options for assigning your proxy: either designate the Secretary of the Board of Directors (BoD) or assign another named Member in Good Standing to vote on your behalf on all matters presented to the Members for vote. If assigning to the Secretary of the BoD, just circle “Option 1,” add your name and signature, and return to us by fax, email, or U.S. mail. If assigning to another Member in Good Standing of your choosing, fill in his/her name, add your name and signature to the form, and deliver that form to the individual you choose as your proxy. That individual must present the proxy when registering at the meeting for validation.
