AmCham Bulgaria Committees Leadership By-Elections 2023: Call for Nominations

Dear Members,

Following the development of the Chamber, we are pleased to announce some opportunities for higher engagement and contribution. AmCham encourages more senior people to join and dedicate time and knowledge to help us together – members, committees, and team – achieve our joint priorities.

As a result of the AmCham Board Strategic Meeting held in late January, our organization will have six committees focused on industry-related matters or cross-industry issues. Their main deliverables remain unchanged: all of their position papers, reports, legal proposals, and ideas should contribute to the further improvement of the business climate in Bulgaria.

It is time to announce the first for 2023 Call for Nominations for a Co-Chair of the following AmCham committee:

  • Healthcare Committee

We firmly believe that your unique contribution is crucial for our joint success. That is why you are encouraged to send a letter of interest in case you would like to participate in the positive change in Bulgaria. The newly elected Co-Chair shall hold the position until his/her predecessor’s mandate ends.

Please send your nominations by April 3rd, 2023, to [email protected]
