Yes, We Hold An Election Every Year!


We hold an election every year to ensure that the members of the AmCham China Board of Governors reflect the most current dynamics, industry and community needs, and diversity of our membership!  The Board's role is to guide the operations of the Chamber, ensuring what we do is what our members need for advocacy, information, business development, and professional growth. We also want to ensure that the election represents the continuity of our generations of wisdom that leads the Chamber while introducing new blood to succession. In this historic course, it is your vote that matters the most! 

A SurveyMonkey ballot has been announced to each of the chamber's corporate member voting representatives and individual members via an email from AmCham China Notice with detailed instructions on how to vote. Please cast your vote before 5:00 PM, November 15, 2017. This year’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday, November 16. The results of the 2018 Board of Governors Election will be announced at the Meeting.

Provided below are the biographies and campaign statements of the candidates running for the Board of Governors. The information is also accessible through the URLs provided on the SurveyMonkey ballot.

If you have any question, please contact Evan Schmitt at We will process your inquiries within 48 working hours.
