We are pleased to announce that we elected a new Management Board, with four new members bringing wonderful experience and expertise from their respective cultural fields into the leadership of our platform.
The Electoral Assembly was held online on Thursday, June 24, with 19 representatives of our member-organizations present. The agenda included a tribute to the former members of the Board – Ares Shporta, Milica Pekić and Teodor Celakoski – whose mandates expired on June 11 2021. They gave their thoughts and presented their experiences on being members of the MB and were thanked by all present.
Afterwards, the new candidates, who presented themselves earlier through written form, each gave a short address during the Assembly. They are: Davor Mišković (Drugo more, Croatia), Luka Knežević-Strika (Association Independent Culture Scene of Serbia, Serbia), Mistral Majer (Asociacija, društvo nevladnih organizacij in posameznikov na področju kulture, Slovenia) and Vullnet Sanaja (Lumbardhi Foundation, Kosovo). Since Tijana Ana Spasovska (JADRO – Association of the independent culture scene in North Macedonia, North Macedonia) became a member in December 2020, she will remain in the Board until December 16 2023.
All of the four candidates received the full 19 votes each and were thus unanimously elected for a three-year mandate. All present representatives of the partner organizations congratulated the new MB members and wished for a fruitful collaboration.
