On Tuesday, 14 March, the British Chamber Shanghai will hold a Town Hall meeting for its members. The purpose of this meeting is for our Executive Committee to present proposed amendments to the Chamber Constitution and to introduce new initiatives planned for the Chamber.

The main areas of amendment are as follows:

  • History of the Chamber and its relationship to the BCCC
  • Definition of the roles and responsibilities of the Executive Committee
  • Changes to the Executive Committee election process allowing for an additional 30 days of canvassing prior to the opening of the voting process
  • Allowing members of the Executive Committee to stand for re-election for a second term in an existing position and capping the overall time of any member on the Committee to six years
  • The provision of the introduction of an online voting system
  • Throughout the constitution, the language and terminology has been amended to provide consistency

A vote will be held at meeting to approve the proposed changes. Members can view the copy of the revised Constitution here, or contact the Executive Director Phil Roebuck to request for a version of the Constitution with tracked changes.

NOTE: In the event that you are unable to attend the Town Hall Meeting, members can still cast their vote on the proposed amendments to the Chamber Constitution by emailing the Executive Director Phil Roebuck no later than 12pm on Tuesday, 14 March 2017.

The Town Hall meeting will signify the start of the 2017 Executive Committee election process, however, it does not replace the formal Chamber 2017 AGM, which will be held in May. Therefore, it is an opportunity for interested members to learn more about the responsibilities and expectations of the Committee, as well as for the Executive Committee to engage with the membership.

The British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai is owned by its members, it is steered by its members (the Executive Committee) in the interests of its members – this is your Chamber!
