Thanksgiving Luncheon and MY AMCHAM CARES Recognition Ceremony 2022

Today, AMCHAM celebrated our annual Thanksgiving Luncheon and MY AMCHAM CARES Recognition where we once again celebrated the best of corporate citizenship while experiencing a traditional thanksgiving feast.

This year, 49 member companies were recognized for outstanding efforts towards corporate citizenship under the MY AMCHAM CARES program. Member companies that were recognized scored the highest across the five pillars of MY AMCHAM CARES – strategy, sustainability, measurability, communication, and partnerships. It is thrilling to see so many of our members still continuing to give back to communities and incorporate elements of ESG into their initiatives. 

Huge shout out to the 13 All Star Achievers as well as the 15 Champion Achievers under the MY AMCHAM CARES Special Recognition, for they have received the recognition for 5 Years and 3 Years respectively. 

H.E. Brian McFeeters, U.S. Ambassador to Malaysia attended along with representatives from the U.S. Embassy Kuala Lumpur, joined by Malaysian government officials and members of AMCHAM’s board of governors. Steve Clayton, AMCHAM’s Vice Chair and JP Morgan Chase Bank’s Vice Chair, Asia Pacific and AMCHAM’s CEO Siobhan Das kicked off the event by going on stage to carve the traditional turkey.

The event was very lively as we celebrated the long year that has been 2022. Special thanks to our Gold Sponsors – GSK, Micron, Haskell and Philip Morris Malaysia; our Silver Sponsors – ExxonMobil, Hershey Malaysia, Motorola Solutions Malaysia, and Samtec; thank you to Starbucks, Coca-Cola and Alltech Biotechnology Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. for sponsoring the drinks, and the team at the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur for a wonderful Thanksgiving spread filled with many traditional dishes. We look forward to 2023 with anticipation and excitement!
