The Board of Governors plays a critical role in driving strategic development of the American Chamber of Commerce in China and represents AmCham China in important advocacy, business, and community activities, especially with regard to AmCham China’s government and industry counterparts. This is particularly true when members of our Board of Governors represent AmCham China and our membership in dialogues and engagements with their public and private sector counterparts in both China and the US during continued challenges to the bilateral relationship.
Seven seats of the Board will be open in this election.
Per the staggered membership of the AmCham China Board of Governors, the following seven incumbents will continue to serve on the 2024 Board:
- Sherry Carbary, Boeing
- Colm Rafferty, Vermeer
- Roberta Lipson, United Family Healthcare
- Alan Beebe, Individual member
- Isabel Ge Mahe, Apple
- Jerry Guo, KKR
- Tony Jiang, Intel
The Board members listed above will be joined by the seven candidates who receive the highest number of votes in this year’s Election, all of whom will serve a two-year term (2024-25). Once the 2024 Board-elect is confirmed, they will elect the chair and two vice chairs for 2024.
