Board of Directors

AmCham Belgium's Board of Directors is responsible for the strategic management of the Chamber. It is comprised of more than 25 members, each of whom is a top executive at their respective US business in Belgium. Board members are elected by the General Assembly, which meets annually and is open to all AmCham Belgium members.

The Board of Directors is assisted by the AmCham Belgium Secretariat, which coordinates the day-to-day operations of the Chamber and provides a hub for the flow of internal and external communication.
