Serve on the Chamber Board

Members and Friends,

The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce is seeking your input! The Board of Directors of the Pasadena Chamber sets the tone, policy
and direction of the organization and, to a major extent, many directions for the community. Directors should value the mission:
To promote economic development and community growth to ensure the prosperity of Pasadena’s businesses and citizens and
purpose of the chamber to advocate and connect our community through serving and educating our members. Each year, new
members are elected to the Board of Directors to serve for 3 year terms.

The primary role as a Board member is (1) to contribute to the defining 2020 Board of Directors being “sworn in” at the 2019 Annual Gala
of the organization mission and vision, (2) governing the fulfillment of
that mission and compliance with organizations bylaws, (3) providing
oversight in policy and position statement development, and (4)
maintaining fiduciary responsibility and awareness of the resources
of the organization. The only eligibility requirements in the By-Laws for
directors seeking a three-year term are that the person be a member in
good standing (dues current) and not currently running for an elected
office. Perhaps the most important unwritten criteria are leadership,
good judgment, and a willingness to serve the membership through
quality time and effort.

Requirements that should be known and agreed upon by prospective candidates for the board are 1) commitment to attend
the day-long retreat session each year; 2) mandatory service on at least one standing or event committee; 3) attend monthly
meetings at 3:30pm on the 3rd Monday of each month (meetings normally last between 1½ to two hours in length, with a few going
longer due to a heavy agenda). The By-Laws read that any director may be removed from the Board following three consecutive
absences or fails to attend at least fifty percent of the regularly called meeting each year, but we urge directors to make every
meeting possible. Perhaps the most important meeting of the year is the one-day retreat for the existing and incoming board and
committee chairs. It is an excellent time to learn about the nuts and bolts of Chamber policies and activities, as well as to get to
know other new and continuing directors on the Board. For a full description of Board responsibilities and code of conduct click
here.

If you would like to nominate someone or yourself to serve
in this capacity please complete the application here and
email it to Cristina Womack at [email protected]
org no later than August 31, 2020. Following the deadline for
applications, the Nominating Committee will meet to review
and recommend the slate of directors for the current Board of
Directors to approve in a subsequent board meeting.

If you have any questions about the process or nominations
please don’t hesitate reaching out to Cristina directly.

Board Members Salvador Serrano & Melinda Torrison at Taste of the Town

Thank you for your continued investment in the chamber and support in finding the next candidates to serve on the board.

While our worlds, businesses, schedules, and plans have been interrupted, altered and in some cases forever changed, we have
continued to engage the 2020 Leadership Class in a significant way. The reality of the last several months has given us a great
opportunity to study, discuss and learn about leadership. Like all of you, our lack of ability to gather face to face has not stopped us
from meeting and connecting. We have been communicating with the class for the last several months weekly through Zoom, as
well as through weekly newsletter communications. The dialogue and learning have been great. This is truly an exceptional group of
leaders who are positioned in our community as influencers who are making an impact in our community.

Here is a quick update on what we have accomplished with IMPACT Pasadena so far in 2020:

IMPACT Leadership
We have created a weekly learning schedule and check-in with the group.
Over the last several months, participants have been working on:
• Clarifying their definition of leadership. They have written a corporate

definition of leadership which we have been reviewing regularly through
the lens of what we are experiencing in leadership in the workplace,
our community, and our nation. Here is what they have come up with:
“Leadership is valuing others while positively influencing them toward
purpose formed through shared vision and conviction.”
• Defining their personal life vision statements along with their core values.
• We have also been progressing through the 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth
which is a mastermind on personal growth and development.

MAY IMPACT DAY
With the gift of technology, we were able to host and facilitate an exceptional training with one of our scheduled speakers for our
originally planned Washington DC Trip. We facilitated a 3-hour training with Colonel Kevin Farrell, US Army Retired after 30+ years. He
is a historian, author, and the CEO of Battlefield Leadership. The training took us on a historical leadership journey through Winston
Churchill as well as an in-depth study of the leadership lessons from Ernest Shackleton. This led us into a discussion around historical
leadership lessons in times of severe crisis and the leadership in our current global crisis.

JUNE IMPACT DAY

In early June, our programming was abundant with a half day meeting with Dr. John Butler,
Faculty Director of Jon Brumley Texas Venture Labs, Senior Faculty McCombs School of Business,
where he discussed leadership in these tumultuous times and his outlook and perspective
on the current climate of the nation. Dr. Butler spoke to the 2019 class last year on business
development and the entrepreneurship of Austin. He was one of the most educational and
informative speakers from last year.

To close the month of June, we had the opportunity to facilitate our first hybrid cohort meeting day with
half the class joining via Zoom and half in person. We were hosted by our partners, PinnacleART with the
upmost safety protocols in place regarding social distancing and face coverings. The purpose of the
meeting was to continue exploring leadership in this unprecedented and extraordinary time. We had
the opportunity to hear from our partners in education, nonprofit, emergency management and first
responders including Dr. DeeAnn Powell – Superintendent, PISD, Dr. Brenda Hellyer – Chancellor, San
Jacinto College, Olivia Rivers – Deputy Director, The Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Frank Bengochea –
Emergency Management Coordinator, Pasadena OEM, and Chief Josh Bruegger – Pasadena Police
Department. We learned about how our community partners are adapting to the current state of the
nation, how their industries have been affected, and how they’ve kept their leadership and core values at the forefront of all the
decisions and challenges they’ve been faced with.

JULY IMPACT DAY
In July, we continued the conversation and dug deeper into exploring leadership in the midst of the pandemic and had the
opportunity to hear from our partners in the Pasadena Faith Community and an extension of our nonprofit partners including
BakerRipley Cleveland Campus, Pasadena Health Center, and the Salvation Army East Harris County. We were hosted by IMPACT
Participant Diane Phelan at San Jacinto Intermediate School where she is the proud principal. The community leaders shared with
us via Zoom their take on leadership and what their organizations have been doing to aid in the biggest challenges they see the
community currently facing. They also shared their outlook on the progress they’ve seen in the community in terms of collaboration
and the opportunities for engagement and aid they see in the near future and what the IMPACT class can keep top of mind as
they venture into their Collective Impact Core Project. During this session, the group was introduced to the theory of Collective
Impact and the opportunity that lies to craft a strategy that lays the foundation of collaboration, effective community impact, and
plans for the future enrichment of the city of Pasadena.

Where are we headed?
While there is growing optimism around the opening of our city, state, and nation we recognize things are subject to change daily.
We will continue to engage the class with regular communication and on-going leadership training.
As you can see, we are continuing to provide, as Ken Phelps would say, Next-Level experiences and engagement for the IMPACT
2020 Leadership class. We hope to return to the planned schedule before the end of the summer but regardless, we will continue to
sow into and serve this incredible group of leaders.
We will begin the application process for IMPACT Pasadena 2021 in the coming weeks. If you are interested in applying for the next
cohort, please be on the lookout for information coming to you via email very soon.

Coronavirus Best Practices for Small Businesses”
The US Chamber of Commerce recently put out a “Coronavirus Best Practices for Small Businesses” that will allow you
to manage the situation for your employees and customers.
CLICK HERE to view.
Some key items included in this guide are how to prioritize critical operations, proper cleaning procedures in the
workplace, procedures for sick employees, teleworking policies, employee communication, and much more.

How to Track & Contain COVID-19 Cases in the Workplace; Advice for Employers
As the state and local economy continues to reopen, Houston-area businesses are rightly concerned about
protecting the health of their employees and customers as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
But what are the protocols when it comes to tracking cases of the virus in the workplace and what are
the parameters of an employer’s actions? The Partnership has developed a comprehensive document
to guide companies on these protocols. Managing Covid-19 Cases in the Workplace, outlines the steps
recommended for managing confirmed or suspected cases:
1. Identify a confirmed or suspected case of Covid-19. This is done either by identifying symptoms during

screening, employees self-reporting their symptoms or an employee receiving a positive test for
Covid-19.
2. Isolate or quarantine the identified employee until it is safe to go home, or send the employee home.
Have the employee isolate for at least 14 days.
3. Investigate whom the employee had close contact with at least 48 hours prior to having symptoms. The
contacts employers should consider could involve third-party vendors or contractors as well as other
employees.
4. Inform the employees or others who had close contact with the suspected or confirmed coronavirus
case at the workplace, but do not disclose who the employee is.
