Emir Festic BHAAAS PresidentDear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great pride that I start my Presidential term in the Academy. The BHAAAS has begun its 12th year and in this short time has achieved substantial success. Carried on the wings of volunteerisms, fueled with enthusiasm and knowledge, our members from North America, Bosnia and Herzegovina and other countries have connected and touched many. Year after year, we have been the key organization for the exchange of knowledge and expertise between North America and BiH, and broader.

To continue this legacy, we have to critically face the challenges and to take on the opportunities lingering on the horizon. One of my priorities will be to broaden the scope of action and to facilitate building new bridges and bonds between USA and Bosnia. We plan to connect with other Bosnian-American organizations, with whom we share common goals.

Our main annual event, The Days of BHAAAS in BiH is set to take place in Sarajevo, on June 20-23, 2019. This is yet another opportunity for our Organization and our supporters to demonstrate the spirit, devotion and generosity in professional exchange of the knowledge and ideas with the fellow citizens from Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region.

I invite you all to join me, by stepping a notch higher in your generous contributions, through more active engagement, support and innovative translation of knowledge and artistic expressions with the fellow citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina. I would like to hear from all of you, your concerns and ideas, as my goal is to engage as many of you as possible in this noble pursuit of ours.

 

On behalf of the BHAAAS Board of Directors,

Truly yours,

Emir Festic BHAAAS President 2019
