Milan Stojanovic – Serbia

What is your motivation to apply for this position to become a Board member for the chapter Serbia?

My motivation to become a Board member of WBAA chapter Serbia is to try to motivate WBAA members from Serbia to become more active and to give greater contribution to their WBAA teams. I do believe that through constant changes in society, student assistance and guidance, cross-border collaborations and promotion of modernisation of higher education we can support the Serbian way towards EU integration and improve relations with other countries in the region.

  • Establishment of a channel of constant communication between members of the WBAA Serbia (Messenger/WhatsApp chat or WBAA Community Portal).
  • Weekly and monthly meetings.
  • Identification and assignment of internal WBAA Serbia responsibilities.
  • Identification and registration of new members.
