Madias, Theodore

Staff Liaison & Secretary

Theodore Madias

Novato Chamber

Committee Members serve 2-year terms; they may serve 2 consecutive terms and then they must observe a mandatory 1-year break. The Committee Chair is elected to a 1-year term and may serve 2 consecutive years as chair before a mandatory year off as Chair is observed. The committee shall not have more than 10 members not including staff. 

If political discussions are brought up, the aim is to present information with the goals of understanding a deeper appreciation and grasp of the topics. The goal is not to influence or coerce. The BEC works to provide balanced views and help the business community understand the fallout from political topics.
