Recently another director, secretary Annemieke Ålenius, has made the same announcement. We also anticipate that in a years’ time the position of treasurer will become open. The AGM 2020 will have to decide/vote on two new board members, the chair and the secretary.
The Board currently consists of four board members working together with and with the support of the Patron, Ambassador Ines Coppoolse, the Advisory Board, regional Directors, Committees and other devoted people.
In a structured format we invited members, stakeholders, board members and others to share their views and suggestions for the succession of the current chair and the expectations for a future chair of the Dutch Chamber as well as the composition of the year 2020 Board of Directors.
Several in person, in depth interviews with major stakeholders and the current Board members have been performed. Substantial progress has been made in formulating our proposal to the upcoming AGM.
Thus far we have decided to propose Els Berkers, current Member Director of the Board, for the position of chairwoman.
Our work will continue to find new candidates to replace Annemieke Ålenius at the AGM 2020 and the Treasurer, Rex Schothorst, at the AGM 2021. Together with the board we wish to create a list of candidates in order to plan for a sustainable and long-term future succession plan . We welcome potential candidates to contact the nominating committee with their interest in board positions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
