2014

BAPA has successfully organized the first forum in Salt Lake City, Utah featuring Bosnian Writers in the US. Through the support of the local community, BAPA was able to raise funds for Bosana Foundation’s scholarship fund during this event.

BAPA continued the monthly networking series ‘a cup of coffee’, capitalizing on the Bosnian traditional network building. The number of Board Members grew as well as the number of new Committee members. At the end of 2013 BAPA’s Facebook page had little over 200 likes. At the end of 2014 BAPA had well over 500 likes. In addition, to interesting news and facts about Bosnia, its professionals and the Bosnian Diaspora, BAPA regularly shares career and college tips.

In the efforts to connect the Bosnian-American professionals in the US BAPA supports a number of organizations and events promoting the BH professionals & culture: the Chapman University Writers Series in Orange County, the Chicago Festival of Bosnian-Hercegovinian Film, the Bosnian-Hercegovinian Film Festival in NYC, the Bosana Foundation, the Bosnian-Hercegovinian Academy of Arts & Sciences, and  the Advisory Council for Bosnia & Hercegovina in Washington DC.
