SVTC Board Elections
How does it work? Who's running?
The SVTC's Board of Directors has two groups for governance purposes, called classes. Each class serves a 2-year term ending with elections alternating so that there is always a mix of new and seasoned members
on the board. The election of the class II of the SVTC Board of Directors is being conducted this month and again we are conducting the election electronically. We will send each member of the SVTC an email containing a link for voting (please note that each
email and link is individually generated and can only be used once), using a company called SurveyMonkey.
Members should expect this email from SurveyMonkey next week. Each link will be active until May 21, 2014. Each member, whether individual or corporate, receives one vote per membership. On May 21st we will have our annual meeting and any SVTC
member who did not vote electronically can then vote in person.

SourceLink Virginia: Putting the Pieces Together for Entrepreneurial & Community Development - inaugural statewide conference. The Conference will bring together a broad array of community economic development
practitioners from Virginia's rural, suburban and urban areas who are committed to achieving the common goal of sharing best-practices and enhancing opportunities for professional networking and interactive learning. Topics will cover a cross-section of practices

tourism promotion agencies, community development financial institutions, Main Street programs, downtown developers, business incubators and more will be on hand to share their experiences and learn from each other.
