Dzenana could you tell us a bit more about you and about your involvement in the LDA Mostar and in the LDAs network?
After almost 10 years of experience in NGO sector I started my engagement in LDA Mostar from August 2004. Official inauguration of LDA Mostar was 22nd November 2004. My position till the end of 2009 was administrative/financial officer and assistant to delegate, and according to the legal registration I was director of the LDA registered at national level as CSO. From the beginning of 2010 I am at the position of delegate of LDA Mostar.
What will be your contribution in the GB to bring the voice of the delegates
In general I see my job as a big challenge and chance to participate in democratisation process of my country and region in whole. ALDA and LDA network is perfect environment to reach that goal. Gives us huge opportunities to realise many useful activities and actions. LDA delegates should use more that opportunity and strengthen the cooperation among LDAs and force ALDA to improve network’s position at European level using its credibility gained during the years of active work.
To conclude, how do you see LDAs network in the future
Each LDA individually I see as a strong partner to local and national governments and jointly in ALDA network, as strong partner to EU institutions especially in pre accession and accession processes and EU enlargement. Also we have to find good model to stay connected to the Croatian LDAs once that Croatia become the EU member state.
