The British Chamber of Commerce in Southwest China will hold its 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 1st of July 2020（Wednesday）, 16:00 – 18:00 hrs at The Temple House Chengdu. We would like to invite all members to attend this meeting.
What is an Annual General Meeting (AGM)?
The AGM is the Chamber’s most important business meeting of the year. It is where we review the activities for 2019/20 and look forward to the next year. The main goals of the event are:
– A year in review
– Chairman Report
– Treasurer Report
– Elect the Board of Directors
Who can attend the AGM?
Any employee from any of our member companies can attend – and it is fine to have multiple attendees from one company. No distinction is made between “CBBC members” and “BritCham members”. Individual members may also attend but may not vote. Non-members may not attend!
There are 10x Executive Committee positions available for nomination, which are:
4x Officers: Including one Chairperson, two Vice Chairpersons, and one Treasurer, who will be responsible for the day-to-day business of the Chamber and be entitled to vote on all issues before the Committee; and
6x At-large Committee Members: Who will assist the Officers in carrying out the day-to-day business of the Chamber and be entitled to vote on all issues before the Committee.
Who can vote at the AGM?
Only corporate voting member company are entitled to vote. Each member company has one “nominated person” who is the main point of contact with the Chamber and normally this will be the person who attends the AGM to vote. However, we can easily transfer the vote to another company representative if that person agrees. If more than one person attends from the same company then only one may vote.
