HUPE Zagorje elections were held on 13th September 2021 at an online meeting in Zoom.
At the beginning of the meeting, the former branch president Gordana Bujanić Tretinjak gave a short report on the last two years. HUPE Zagorje held two meetings in the school year 2019/2020 before the Covid 19 pandemic led to lockdown and all the schools in the country were closed. That didn’t stop us, so HUPE Zagorje participated in organisation and carrying out the virtual meetings that the organisation held in 2020 and 2021.
Currently, our branch has 45 members (out of which only 7 members haven’t renewed their membership – one retirement, three maternity leaves) and is growing every day. Out of the total number, 22 people participated in the meeting and took part in the voting.
We had two candidates for the branch president for the first time in four years of our work: Valerija Smerekar from SŠ Krapina and Petra Gorički from SŠ Bedekovčina and SŠ Zabok. The ladies presented themselves and their vision for the future of the branch. Voting was held in Google forms, and Petra Gorički was voted the new branch president by winning 14 votes.
I wish to congratulate our new president and wish her many great LIVE meetings and a lot of fun in running our branch!
Also, thank you all for being part of our little Zagorje branch for these four years and sharing your ideas, enthusiasm and love for teaching English. #sharingiscaring
HUPE Zagorje will continue to inspire and hopefully become a bigger branch in the future.
