2022 marks two years since the current Directors assumed their leadership responsibilities, and, according to our Bylaws, there should be a system to renew the mandates of board and Executive Committee members, and we have to elect a new Board, Executive Committee, and Council.

That is why we are waiting for your feedback from all members of the AmHunCham about who and what tasks they would undertake, and who the membership would like to nominate to the Board of Directors, Executive Committee, and the Council. Based on this, the new Board and Council would be elected.

To help you make the statements, you can see below what tasks and expectations can be required from the members of the Board, Executive Committee, and Council.

The leaders are working on the following rules according to the Bylaw:

The same person, except the offices of President and Secretary, may hold any two or more offices. The President, Vice-President(s), Secretary, and Treasurer will be on the Board of Directors.”
