The AmCham Board is comprised of nine elected members whose task is to define a strategy and implement basic guidelines for AmCham’s development policy. As defined by the Statute of the American Chamber of Commerce, members elect officers to fill half of the seats on the Board of Governors every year in order to ensure continuous functioning of the organisation.
Special guest speaker US Ambassador Mary Warlick emphasized the Embassy’s support for AmCham and said she was looking forward to even closer cooperation in 2012. In addition, she thanked US Steel for all its efforts and contributions towards Serbian economic development and prosperity during its presence in Serbia.
In addition, President Đurković delivered the association’s Annual Report for 2011, followed by voting for a proposed set of Amendments to the AmCham Statute, and a ceremonial concert by the NEVSKI QUARTET.
