Elected 21 candidates who form the executive panel, will thereafter choose seven office bearers from themselves who would run the Chamber for next one year. The election will be held on September 26, 27 and 28.
The office bearers consist of the president, two vice presidents, one general secretary, two joint secretaries and a treasurer.
