Praxis at the Annual Assembly Meeting of MODS

Taken from MODS' website

The Annual Assembly Meeting of the Network of Organisations for Children of Serbia (MODS) was held in Kragujevac on 16 and 17 November 2018. This was another opportunity for the members of the Network to meet, consider and adopt proposals relevant to the MODS's work and to admit new members.

MODS has a new member of the Supervisory Board

The MODS Assembly also elected a new member of the Supervisory Board. The Assembly unanimously elected Nataša Raičević, Programme Director of the Center for Social Preventive Activities GRiG, a new member of the Supervisory Board. The members of the Supervisory Board are now: Radomir Jevtić (A Step Forward, Kruševac), Ana Jovanović (Center for Creative Development Knjaževac) and Nataša Raičević (GRiG, Belgrade).

One of agenda items was voting for the admission of new organisations into the Network. A total of five organisations presented themselves to the Assembly, after which the Assembly unanimously decided to admit all of them into its membership. Presently, MODS has 101 member organisations.

Five new MODS members are:

• Psychosocial Innovation Network (PIN), Belgrade

• NGO Sovice, Belgrade

• Education Development Center “Planet”, Sombor

• Healthy Lifestyle Workshop, Belgrade

• Music Art Project, Belgrade

New governing acts adopted by the Assembly

The Assembly then voted on adopting new governing acts of MODS, which had been drafted at the proposal of the Steering Committee. After a brief discussion and with some amendments, the Assembly unanimously adopted.

  1. Act on Detailed Requirements and Procedures for Admission to Membership, Exclusion from Membership and the Rights and Obligations of MODS Members;
  2. MODS Guidelines for Child Protection.

Part of the Assembly Meeting dedicated to furthering the work of MODS

An important pillar of MODS action is to develop the capacity of organisations to improve the situation of children and strengthen mutual cooperation. Therefore, holding the Assembly Meeting was also recognised as an opportunity to open a discussion on possibilities for further improvement of the Network's work. The second day of the Assembly Meeting was dedicated to discussions on the ways to improve the MODS activities, so that participants had the opportunity to give their comments and suggestions within the working groups.

The Assembly discussed, among other things, the ways in which MODS could further enhance its capacities and increase the visibility of the work of organisations. There were also some new suggestions that MODS would seek to implement in its work.
