On April 20, AmCham members gathered for the Annual General Meeting 2017 at the one of the most innovative and creative venues in town – The Club of Different Rooms in Telliskivi.
This year our AGM consisted of two parts – during the first hour we shared the recap of the year 2016 with facts & figures, financials, advocacy & policy reports by committee chairs and representatives. After having voted and approved the Annual Report 2016, we introduced our plans for 2017, including new members recently joined the Chamber – Hansa Medical, Orangetime, J&J Family of companies, Ambassadors of Design and the newest Charter Gold member Archibus – we are delighted to welcome you on board! To conclude the program of the first hour was one of the most important parts of the meeting – the election of the AmCham Board for the 2017-2019 term. Each member had a chance to cast their vote and based on their votes, the re-elected Board members are:
- Mihail Burõhh (Meriton Family Estate)
- Indrek Laul (Estonia Piano Factory)
- Kathleen Naglee (International School of Estonia)
They will serve the Board together with Andrus Alber (Finora Capital), Carl Pucci (Datel/Ovela LLC), Elvira Tulvik (Magnusson Law Firm) , Kai Tammist (Philip Morris Eesti), Niels Hollender (Pan-Baltic Trading Group), Wade Stokes (TransferWise), who are already serving for the 2016-2018 term.
