AMANDA BEIGHTS, SENIOR DIRECTOR, LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS
Hasan Kajtezovic, Supply Chain Manager – Team Synergyexperience with Arthrex, and graduate of Associate Leadership Collier (ALC) Class of 2019, understands how strong community leadership programming can cultivate economic opportunity for all. Knowing this, Hasan took on a world-class leadership role to work with his home county of Bosnia, and with the Leadership Collier Foundation(LCF) of the Greater Naples Chamber to create a Bosnian ALC program!
As noted in the Congress of Bosniaks of North America: "On July 13th, 2021, the Congress of Bosniaks of North America successfully completed the ‘New Leaders of Una-Sana Canton’ program, which launched on June 10th, 2021. This year’s program took place in Bihać, Bosnia, and Herzegovina, and was attended by 15 working professionals who successfully completed the program. The aim of this program was the transfer of knowledge and best practices from the U.S. to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce (Naples, FL) has successfully run a similar program in the U.S. for the past several years. The Congress of Bosniaks of North America, through the effort of its Director of Homeland Relations, Mr. Hasan Kajtezovic, was able to bring together the Chambers of Commerce from Naples, FL and Una Sana Canton and facilitate the transfer of knowledge and best practices between the two organizations. The program is supported by the USAID ‘Diaspora Invest’ project."
Hasan will continue to work with his Bosnian partners and Amanda Beights, Senior Director of Leadership Programs, for consultation as all work to continue to expand successful international programming.
