ACCE President Mick Fleming was recently appointed to a second three-year term as Vice-Chair of the World Chambers Federation’s (WCF) General Council. The appointment came during the executive board meeting of the International Chamber of Commerce. Fleming holds the distinction as the first American to have been elected to serve on the WCF board.
“I am honored to continue serving as vice-chair of the World Chambers Federation,” said Fleming. “I look forward to working with the newly elected leadership in strengthening the global network of chambers and to reinforce the role chambers play in their respective communities – wherever they are in the world.”
Also during the meeting, Peter Mihok, president of Slovakia’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry, was elected the new Chair of WCF. ACCE's longtime friend and ally Hamad Buamim, director general of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce, was elected Deputy Chair. The new Chair and Deputy bring a wealth of experience to their positions after having already served WCF in various roles.
