Mid-Year Letter from the President

Dear AmCham Members:

It is mid-June, which means that it is usually the time when we slow down, take a short summer break and use this time to look back at the first half of the year, as well as an action plan for the Fall Season.

Looking back at the first six months of 2019, we can proudly say that it has been a very successful season! We have managed to

  • Hold 18 events, including such popular and large-scale events as the Annual Spring Gala, Pre-Election Political Debate, Cyber Security Seminar with FBI, Women in Politics luncheon, 2-day Pan-Baltic AmChams meeting in Tartu and many more
  • Grow our member network by 12 new members!
  • Launch a new event program – Morning Series with AmCham!
  • Transform our Intellectual Property Committee into the new Digital Society Committee
  • Elect 5 new board members to the AmCham Board of Directors
  • Submit our proposals to the new government on the business topics that are of great importance to you, our members
  • Co-sign the Letter of Support of the Three Seas Initiative alongside other 11 AmChams and present it at the Three Seas Summit in Ljubljana on June 5

… these are just some of the highlights! And it goes without saying, that all of this has been possible due your active involvement in our events, committee work, and overall the active life of the chamber!

As we take the slower summertime to prepare for the upcoming Fall Season, we plan to continue with our traditional conferences and programs, like the

  • Annual Meeting with the Prime Minister (September 4)
  • Women in Leadership Luncheon (September 20)
  • e-Health Innovation Conference (October)
  • Transatlantic Business Conference & Awards (November)
  • Annual Thanksgiving Family Dinner (November 29)
  • Christmas Reception & End of Year Awards (December 11)
  • and, of course, morning workshops and seminars, committee meetings, etc.

The events will appear on our website throughout the next few months so please keep an eye on our homepage www.amcham.ee!

If you have any ideas, suggestions, or maybe visitors, who you would like to share with AmCham, please do not hesitate to reach out to Daria and Maria. We always appreciate your feedback and input!

We wish you a very relaxing and enjoyable summer season! Soak up the sun, charge your batteries and we cannot wait to kick off the fall season with you on August 26!

With sunny greetings,

Indrek Laul, AmCham President

Daria Sivovol, AmCham CEO
