Qatar Chamber has announced that it will dedicate two shifts during the holy month of Ramadan for the attestation on proxies for the elections of the chamber’s board of directors.

The morning shift will start from 9am to 2pm, while the evening shift will start from 9pm to 11pm, Sunday to Thursday, and will close two days before the chamber’s second general assembly scheduled on May 30 at La Cigale Hotel. May 28 is the last day for attesting proxies.

The chamber held its first annual general meeting on May 14 but was postponed to May 30 due of lack of quorum. The second meeting will be held regardless of the number of attendees.

The meeting will discuss Qatar Chamber’s fiscal report for the year ending December 31, 2017 and a new auditor for the 2018 financial year will be appointed. The meeting will also witness the election of six council of board of directors. The members who have the right to attend and vote should accomplish the subscription for 2018 until the date of the general assembly meeting.

Qatar Chamber’s Supervising Committee of the Elections recently held a meeting in preparation for the elections, which is being organised in accordance with the decision of the Ministry of Economy and Commerce No 83 of 2018 and Resolution No 86 on formulating the supervising committee for the chamber’s elections.
