SAI Advisory Board Updates

Dorianne Beyer, Chair of the SAI Advisory Board's Membership Committee announced some recent developments to the board

January 2013

"Pursuant to the Advisory Board's newly agreed and implemented Membership rotation policies, the Main seat holders Manuel Rodriguez (Chiquita) and Aadith D. Vikram (Prem Group Company) and their Alternates George Jaksch (Chiquita) and Robin Cornelius (Switcher) have been accordingly rotated off the SAI Advisory Board as of December 31, 2012.

As "oldtimers", and very dedicated ones at that, their service has been both commendably long and extremely valuable. Truly, SAI and SA8000 would not be the esteemed agency and standard it is today without the significant contributions of these Advisory Board members. We thank them beyond measure.

The Advisory Board is multi-stakeholder in structure. We will maintain the balance of membership between trade unions, civil society organizations and companies. The Membership Committee plans to introduce the nominations of three new candidates at the Spring Advisory Board meeting. Your suggestions of possible candidates are welcome."
