The American Chamber of Commerce in Cambodia (AmCham) is looking for three (out of nine) new board of governors after Steven Path, Sophea Ros and Tean Ly resigned from their elected positions last week.
The chamber said they wished to thank the departing board members for their service and support of the organization. “They brought a focus and passion for Cambodia and for American business interests, and they will be missed,” a Facebook post read.
“If your a company-level or above member of AmCham interested in serving on the board please email or the Executive Director,” it added.
The official reason behind the three resignations was not given however it is believed one was no longer employed with the member company and two were due to an internal disagreement.
In November last year six new board members were elected by 73 out of 93 eligible company members.
The elected board members were Anthony Galliano, Michael Berg, Christopher McCarthy, Pauline Teoh, Tean Ly and Pily Wong. The six new board members were elected out of 16 candidates.
In May, AmCham announced Kim Tol Tan as a new board governor replacing Pauline Teoh from AIA Insurance – Cambodia Investment Review was informed Pauline had relocated to Hong Kong.
According to AmCham regulations, candidates are elected by members to the board of governors annually with a two-year term limit. Board members must step down following two consecutive terms for a period of one-year before becoming eligible to run again.
Founded in 1996, the American Chamber of Commerce in Cambodia (AmCham Cambodia) supports, advocates and promotes forward-looking Public and Private Sector collaborations that contribute to the regional and global advancement of the Cambodian business environment, professional development and technological innovation in the overall achievement of meaningful, diversified economic growth.
