While the new Companies Law famously brings changes to the structure and procedure of registering companies, one of the key changes not often headlined is the expanded limitations, requirements and responsibilities for directors and officers of companies in Myanmar. These impose separate and distinct compliance items for directors and officers themselves to comply with, apart from those required of the company. The session is intended to apprise would-be directors and officers of what is expected of them administratively and in a fiduciary capacity.

The session will cover:
• Powers, duties and restrictions relating to directors and officers
• Appointment, removal and renewal of directors and officers
• New fiduciary positions in the company
• Case studies discussing material changes in the law

Date and Time: March 13, 9 am to 11 am
Venue: AMCHAM Office, #19-09 Sule Square, 221 Sule Pagoda Road, Kyauktada Township, Yangon (New venue)
Cost: USD 15 or 22,000 Kyats per member; USD 25 or 35,000 Kyats per non-member
