About Us

The Bosnian-American Professionals Association was founded in April of 2013 in Salt Lake City. The organization is incorporated as a non profit in the state of Utah. In 2015 BAPA received the 501(c)3 determination letter. The organization is managed by an all volunteer board. As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, BAPA relies on contributions from individuals, including board members, corporations, foundations and government entities. BAPA’s primary purpose is to provide networking opportunities for fellow Bosnian-Americans and foster continued professional growth in our community. We are working on accomplishing these goals through community outreach, mentoring programs, and a scholarship fund, while strengthening connections to our homeland. BAPA envisions an organization that will assist Bosnian-Americans in navigating the education system and aid professionals in furthering their career goals at all stages of educational and professional development.
