Due to current Covid-19 restrictions in Bangkok the 2021 BCCT Annual General Meeting will be conducted virtually using Zoom from 12 noon to 1:30 pm on Thursday 28th January. Please register here. The agenda is as follows:-
BCCT members have previously elected board directors through voting on the day at a physical AGM and advance votes. Due to the virtual nature of the AGM this year, voting will be conducted online using ‘Election Runner’. Our thanks to our friends and colleagues at AMCHAM Thailand for their advice and support. Direct from ‘Election Runner’, the main representative in each member company will receive an invitation to vote for a maximum 7 board directors and vote for or against the proposed changes to the constitution. Instructions are available on the ballot page once you have access to vote online. Please make every effort to ensure that you or a representative of your company exercise your right to vote.
The main changes to the BCCT constitution proposed by the board cover term limits for board directors (4 consecutive years) and officers (2 consecutive years). The board notes that change promotes diversity and is important for the vitality of the chamber. It is key that the board is open to those who wish to contribute. It is also good governance for organisations to change their Non-Executive Directors on a regular basis. Effectively, those serving longer terms who wish to return to the board would need to take one year out before standing again. Other proposed changes cover electronic voting and routine points such as the change of the BCCT office address. Marked up and clean versions of the constitution may be accessed at the link on point 5 of the agenda above.
NOMINATIONS TO THE 2021 BCCT BOARD
There are 15 candidates for election to the 7 available positions on the BCCT's Board of Directors for 2021. The first seven elected will serve 2 year terms.
To ensure fairness, the order in which 2021 BCCT Board candidates are listed above was determined by the BCCT Events staff randomly drawing names out of a hat.
The results of the election will be announced at the close of the meeting
