The SMC Councils are an organization of business owners and employees that meet quarterly to discuss issues and questions with the SMC membership.
SMC meetings are held for the first time ever, so there is no “old” SMC Council that meets every three years. There are a few changes to the organization, though, because the council isn’t just a group of business owners and employees, but also the SMC Board of Directors. This is because the Board is comprised of the business owners and employees who are SMC members.
A SMC Council is comprised of both business owners and employees. This is because the Board is comprised of both business owners and employees. The business owners and employees are the ones who are invested in the SMC and want to be a part of it. The SMC is the organization that is the business owners and employees.
In the past business council members would have been the ones who would have voted on the agenda for the SMC, but that is changed now. The SMC Board of Directors is the same as the SMC Council, which is comprised of both business owners and employees.
As a business owner or employee, you might be able to convince a SMC Board member to be a part of your SMC, but this is not an easy task. Although voting is not required, you would want to make sure that your company has a good relationship with your SMC and that the other business owners on the SMC Board are loyal.
In our recent survey, the SMC Board members were pretty split between two camps. There were those that felt that businesses need to be involved and are more than just consumers. There were some who felt that the SMC is a forum for business, and that employees should be involved as well. These two camps are pretty evenly split between two different perspectives. The majority of the SMC members voted in favor of the idea of SMC members being involved in business decisions.
