On Friday, 17 February 2023, HDKP held its annual assembly, the first physical gathering since the outbreak of the pandemic. As this year the Society members were to elect new officials, we were happy to see so many of them gather to elect the new Steering Board, Supervisory Board and the Court of Honour.
Sandra Breznički Ucović will keep heading the new Steering Board as president of our Society, Nata Hajdu was re-elected vice-president and Erna Ferendža Luburić will keep going as secretary. Sandra Palihnić Jurina was elected treasurer and will replace Elvira Mulić. The Supervisory Board has not changed its composition: Sanja Matešić, Zvjezdana Kastrapeli and Jasenka Šafran were all re-elected, as were the members of the Court of Honour: Toni Luburić, Goranka Antunović and Ljiljana Culjak.
The General Assembly thus elected the new leadership of the Society and adopted the financial plan and the general work programme for 2023. The members also discussed a number of topics relevant to our profession. Furthermore, the Assembly amended the Professional Conference Interpreting Standards and admitted Nevena Erak Camaj as a new member, whereas Iva Brajković was elected a new pre-candidate. We wish all the best to both of them and are looking forward to having them take part in the activities of our Society and join us in our efforts to promote our profession.
