AmCham Romania Events 2020 Annual General Meeting of Members (AGM) and Elections for the Board of Directors and Auditing Committee

2020 Annual General Meeting of Members (AGM) and Elections for the Board of Directors and Auditing Committee

Mar 31, 2020 Online, via Cisco Webex Meetings

Due to the COVID-19 pandemics, the March 31 Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be changed to a virtual meeting, hosted by Cisco Webex Meetings, thus replacing the traditional event format, yet still allowing us to maintain the announced AGM and Board of Directors and Auditing Committee Elections.

We are pleased to announce that HE Adrian Zuckerman, Ambassador of the United States of America will join the meeting and address members of the AmCham Community.

This change brings forth important changes in the AGM logistics that require members' involvement, therefore detailed instructuctions have  been submited via email. 

While technology allows us to replace a physical event, our interaction and possibility to openly discuss on the topics on the agenda will be limited, therefore, this year we are opening the voting on the AGM decisions prior to the AGM meeting, similarly to the voting process already in place for the Board of Directors and 2020 elections.

Thus, the calling notice distributed to members via email on March 23 includes the agenda and an extended voting ballot that members can fill in and return to vote@amcham.ro prior to the AGM on March 31, 2020 by the set time for the start of the Annual General Meeting.

The Agenda for the 2020 Annual General Meeting includes beyond opening remarks:

  1. Proposed amendments to the AmCham Romania Statutes.
  2. 2019 Activity Report – Presentation and Approval
  3. 2019 Financial Report: Budget vs. Actual – Presentation and Approval
  4. 2020 Budget – Presentation and Approval
  5. Elections of the AmCham Romania Board of Directors and Auditing Committee
  6. Acknowledgements for leading contributors to the AmCham activity in 2019
  7. Areas of focus for 2020

Following the 5:00 p.m. deadline on March 5,  the Nomination Committee validated 18 of a total of 18  incoming nominations for the Board of Directors and 4 out of 4 incoming nominations for the Auditing Committee! Voting began on March 10 and will end on March 31, 2020, the date of the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
Candidates'Presentation is included for your information under the AGM event details on AmCham’s webpage here.

The eight candidates to be elected in 2020, of which at least one will represent an AmCham member company in the Business category, according to the Art. 33 (2), Section II of the AmCham Statutes, will join the five members of the Board of Directors, elected in March 2019 who are halfway through their two-year statutory mandate.

The results of the elections for the new Board of Directors and Auditing Committee will be announced around 19:30 during the online AGM on March 31 and via email to all AmCham Romania members after the AGM.

The AGM will close at 20:30 with the Board of Directors announcing the resolutions of its first meeting on the election of the President, two Vice-Presidents and Treasurer. Participation to the AGM is open to CEO/top level representative of AmCham member companies as well as to active contributors to AmCham Romania’s committees and task force.

Thank you for accommodating this change and for submitting your voting ballot via email. Please don’t hesitate to raise any questions or ask for clarification on the topics subject to the AGM approval prior to the meeting to agm@amcham.ro or by phone at 0744 685 375.
