This Letter has been sent to all current ACC Board Members. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for Appendix 1 and Appendix 2.
The Association of Corporate Counsel, Singapore Chapter, Limited (“ACC Singapore”) is calling upon ACC Singapore Associate Members (“Members”) to nominate current Members to serve as officers and/or directors on its Board of Directors (the “Board”).
The current members of the Board are listed in Appendix 1.
The election of Board members will be determined by a majority vote of Members present in person or by proxy at ACC Singapore’s Annual Meeting of Associate Members (the “Annual Meeting”). The size of the Board for the fiscal year ending 30 September 2021 will not exceed eleven.
The officer and director positions (the Positions) up for election are:
- Vice President
- At-large Board Directors
The 2020 Nominating Committee (listed in Appendix 2) is charged with recommending candidates for the Positions. Each Officer and Director will serve for one year starting on 12 November 2020. Service as an Officer or Board member offers you the opportunity to shape the future of ACC Singapore.
Nominations of candidates, including self-nominations, are due by 5:00 p.m. SGT on Monday 5th October 2020. Nominations should include:
- The name of the Member being nominated.
- The candidate’s brief biography, including her or his tenure as a member of the Association of Corporate Counsel, whether as a member of the Singapore chapter, or other chapters.
- A short statement about why the individual should be selected (not to exceed 200 words).
The 2020 Nominating Committee will consider all nominations before recommending the final slate of names to the Board and the Associate Members for election at the Annual Meeting.
In accordance with Article 28 of ACC Singapore’s Articles of Association, individuals who obtain the signatures of at least ten (10) Members to support their candidacy for any Position will be automatically included in the list of candidates to be considered by the Associate Members for election at the Annual Meeting.
Please submit your nominations to email@example.com. The Nominating Committee is under no obligation to consider any nomination that is incomplete.
The principal criteria that the Nominating Committee seeks are a commitment and willingness to progress the objectives of ACC Singapore, as well as a candidate’s maturity, ability to work as a team, as well as her or his general standing as a leader within the in-house community. In considering candidates for the Positions, the Nominating Committee seeks to reflect the diversity of ACC Singapore’s membership and the wider in-house community.
All Officers and Board members must be willing to commit and have sufficient time and employer support to discharge the duties of the relevant role. The Nominating Committee may give preference to those who have demonstrated their commitment to ACC Singapore through their past contributions. These contributions may include frequency of past participation at ACC Singapore events.
After reviewing all nominations, the Nominating Committee will propose a final slate of candidates on 8 October 2020, which will be included in the notice of the Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting is currently scheduled for 12 November 2020, and its final date will be confirmed via the Notice of Annual Meeting required to be provided to the Associate Members in accordance with ACC Singapore’s Articles of Association.
