Taking into consideration the increasing numbers of infected and deceased people in Bulgaria and our determination not to take any risk for you, our members, as well as for us, the AmCham Bulgaria team, the AmCham Board of Directors decided to postpone the General Assembly to April 20, 2021. If compelling circumstances, arising from the crisis with the coronavirus, prevent the Chamber from holding a General Assembly on April, 20 2021, the event will take place either on May 18, 2021 or June 10, 2021, at Sofia Hotel Balkan, 5, Sveta Nedelya Square, 1000 Sofia. Our decision is in line with Article X, Section B, para (1) of the Statutes.

The mandates of the Board Members whose seat at the Board of Directors are subject to the current elections are prolonged until the General Assembly takes place.

Stay healthy and safe!
