Opening the meeting, committee chair Calvin Ray introduced AmCham to newcomers and participants introduced themselves. The meeting then moved to gather ideas regarding the types of events members want to see the committee held in 2021.
Calvin said he was interested in retail investment, and other ideas included talks on content creation and how to start a business, especially during the pandemic, and a fun virtual activity with a similar vibe to the committee’s signature Amazing Big Durian Race, which is grounded due to the pandemic.
Artificial Intelligence (AI), data collection, and presentation models, along with digital entrepreneurship were also brought up by participants, noting how the pandemic has introduced many new ways these things can impact our daily lives. Another proposal focused on customer protection in online purchasing, privacy issues, and licensing and branding.
