BHAAAS Board Meeting Summary - December 22, 2013

In attendance: Gordan Srkalovic, Dusica Babovic-Vuksanovic, Igor Lemajic, Patrick McCarthy, & Nirvana Pistoljevic.

1. Bihac Dani BHAAAS- May 21-24, 2014
  • We need to form a local (in BiH) organizing committee and an Academy committee.
  • We will circulate an e-mail to all members to identify those attending the Bihac meeting and to solicit those to work on organizing specific sections.
  • Nirvana has a template from the Sarajevo meeting that can be used for the Bihac meeting.
  • We will apply for meeting funding from the Federal BiH Ministry of Health. 
    • Nirvana has good contacts in Ministry of Health, and Gordan will send her the contact information from the cardiologist from Mostar who helped secure funding for that meeting.
2. Financial report
  • We have about $13,500 in our main account and about $2,000 in our PayPal account. 
    • This includes funds earmarked for the Bihac hospital donation and the Wikipedia project prize funds.
  • We will receive an infusion of funds in the first quarter of 2014 with annual dues payments.
  • Igor will develop a projected 2014 budget so that we can plan income and allocate expenses.

3. Membership dues collection
  • Igor is working with webmaster Amir to create annual dues payment button on Academy website that separates one-time payments from those setting up recurring, automatic dues payments.
  • Once this is fully in place, Igor will notify Gordan and Patrick so that the links can be added to the dues letter.
    • The dues letter will then be sent, with reminder messages in January, February, and March.
    • The March reminder will be notification of inactive status for those who have not paid dues by March 31, 2014.
4. Membership survey
  • Final survey results are attached to this message.
  • Patrick will analyze results and share a set of recommended goals with the Executive Committee based on the survey responses.
    • Suggested goals will include follow-up for committee assignments; budget and project planning; conducting an annual membership survey; and more.
A few highlights:

* 66 total responses (out of 220) -- a strong 30% response rate (8-10% is typical).

* We heard from new and veteran members in every category: active (29), associate (18), corresponding (6), international (3), honorary (8), and candidate (2).

* 36 respondents interested in regional chapters --
  • West: Davis (California), Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Diego, San Jose.
  • Midwest: Chicago, Cincinnati, Louisville, Madison (Wisconsin), Minneapolis.
  • South: Charlotte, Houston, Miami, Memphis
  • East: Boston, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Washington, DC
  • Canada: Toronto
  • BiH: Banja Luka, Sarajevo, Zenica
  • Other International: Jakarta, Sweden
* 22 members are interested and / or eligible for a Young Professionals Division.

* 28 members are willing to serve on a committee.
5. Scholarship Committee changes
  • Proposal is to include Scholarship Committee as subcommittee of the new Projects Committee. 
    • Mirsad Hadzikadic may agree to continue to lead along with new participants.

6. Open discussion / other topics
  • We will seek funding for this project, though as we solicit donations from members for this and other projects, we will re-organize our donation links on the Academy website.
  • We did not receive requested funding for the Sarajevo Philharmonic Project.
    • As agreed, we will assist with funding this year from Academy funds and will continue to seek other funding sources.
  • Sasa Hemon's Book of My Lives has been selected for numerous Top Ten Best Books of 2013 Lists, including Time Magazine and the BBC. We will feature in the next newsletter.
  • We will solicit 2013 publications from members (in process).
