CDN New Project Coordinator
We are happy to announce that Petra Skuljevic, our current Executive Committee member, will become our first Project Coordinator within the CDN Secretariat. Petra will start working from Mid-December. She is originally from CDN Member Organization Green window, Croatia and for more than 3 years involved in youth projects, non-formal education and the Green movement.
After our former Office coordinator left that position, we issued an open call in search for a successor. Unfortunately this process could not be finalized due to external factors. Executive Committee took a long breath and after Strategy Planing Meeting, held in Belgrade last week, decided to restructure Secretariat and open the Project coordinator position.
The second decision was to nominate current EC member, elected by General Assembly by delegates of our Member Organizations, Petra Skuljevic, whose responsibilities within EC were project based. Petra proved herself as a hard worker and a very motivated and enthusiastic person, creative and innovative. With previous experience and success in the project management sphere in the past years, she proved herself as the perfect candidate.
We wish Petra all the best in her new job and we are certain that CDN will, under her eye, continue to have more terrific projects than ever.
