On Friday our board members had a strategic planning meeting in Mostar during which they discussed activities and goals for this year, but also which structural changes need to be made in the Foundation in order to work more effectively. The most important change is the establishment of Student and Young Professional Leadership Committee (SYPLC), which aims to scale, diversify and extend future activities of Foundation, giving students and young professionals a unique opportunity to grow and extend their responsibilities.
From now on the Committee will oversee almost all operational and daily tasks related to our work, which will be very helping for our Board of Directors since they will focus on more challenging tasks such as fundraisings and our strategic partnerships. We are extremely proud of the fact that all eight students of the Committee are part of our family almost since the beginning and now they will have the opportunity to put their leadership skills and assertiveness into action and in such way act as ambassadors in order to promote our activities whenever possible and suitable and to help us grow all together.
Every member will have a special role within the committee, which was assigned to them according to their interests and strengths. We proudly present you new roles:
