Call for Nominations to the CCCJ Board of Governors - 2015-2017 term
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Japan (CCCJ) is governed by an 8 to 15 Member Board of Governors elected by the Members of the CCCJ.
All Members in good-standing are eligible and encouraged to nominate candidates for the Board of Governors for the 2015-2017 term.
The Board of Governors’ mandate is to direct the business affairs of the Chamber, determine the policies and priorities of the Chamber and supervise the management of the Chamber. As representatives of the Members of the Chamber, the Governors establish strategic objectives, approve major financial transactions, and review and approve operating budgets, to ensure that the Chamber is managed to meet the needs of the Members and maintain financial stability.
In principle, Governors serve for a term of two (2) years and meet approximately ten (10) times a year. In addition, most Governors serve on one or more committees, to deal with specific issues or initiatives.
Prospective Governors come from all walks of life and bring varied experience to the Chamber Board. All Governors share an interest in business between Canada and Japan and a desire to help the Chamber reach its objectives.
