Before the AGM the board comprised 7 directors of which two directors were due for re-election.
With Denmark recently nominated as the least corrupted country in the world, the board presented its intentions to emphasize good governance. A number of proposals intended to promote more transparency and good governance in the Chamber were placed for voting before the AGM participants. The proposals would implement stricter screening procedures on electing the Board Directors and the Chairman. One proposal was approved, and the new board was requested to strengthen the other proposals for the next coming AGM. The Treasurer presented a nice surplus against a planned deficit for 2018 and a realized deficit for 2017.
