The warmest day of the generally declared tedious winter made it possible for our older members to attend the General Meeting of our Community. The meeting was of importance as elections for new members of all Community bodies were scheduled for the meeting. Upon hearing the annual reports and their approval special attention was given to modify and complement the stature of JCZ with that of the Federation of JC of Serbia. The procedure was an effort made toward the development and strengthening of the role of the Federation as the roof organization of all JC in Serbia. However our community’s autonomy and its centuries long specific identity has been maintained. To enable more efficient functioning of Community bodies the Board decided to appoint coordinators with specific tasks instead of cumbersome committees. In future there will be coordinators for activities consistent with work with youths, women’s action and cultural programs within the JCZ and the Federation.
Finally the election process for new body members of JCZ was attended to. In his closing speech Mr. Nenad Fogel thanked all present for reelecting him President of JCZ and on behalf of all elected members laid out the Community’s General action plan for the period 2009 to 2013.
