Register here to attend the BLCC AGM
Register yourself with a possible +1 here for the Reception after the AGM.
Venue will be around Taikoo Place, to be determined following health regulations in force at the time
We will hold the official proceedings in Blueprint, 2/F Dorset House, Taikoo Place, 979 King's Road, Quarry Bay. It is our hope & goal to welcome everyone from our business communities to a reception afterwards. However at the time of publication (21 May 2020) the social distancing measures currently in force prohibit this. If by 11 June (or earlier) these measures are relaxed, the reception will go ahead. If that happens, the evening is planned as follows:
6:45pm - 7:15pm: AGM
7:30pm onward: Reception at a venue to be announced
The AGM is only open to BLCC members; the reception afterwards can be attended by anyone interested in the activities of the Chamber.
There will be an open forum to discuss the activities & the direction of the Chamber which is only possible if the membership turns out in big numbers. Please register your attendance for the AGM (& reception) by selecting your tickets on this page. Even though the event is free of charge please register so I can properly prepare the catering, thanks for your consideration in this.
As per our Articles of Association a quorum of 42 votes is necessary for the AGM to be legally constituted. If you cannot attend the AGM you can nominate a proxy to represent you at the meeting. Please fill in and return the proxy form (attached) to me on email@example.com no later than 4 June.
I have already received several nominations from our members to stand for election to join the Board of Directors. If you would like to nominate yourself or another BLCC member, then this is possible until 4 June. Please use the attached nomination form and submit it to me no later than that date.
I look forward to having a participative meeting with the members (& a jubilant reception) afterwards, see you there!
