Aimed to mutual informing on the actions taken in 2016, reviewing the progress and challenges in implementation of the agreed activities and define next steps for achieving the set goals an Annual Assembly of the Roma Civic Parliament – Prilep and Bitola was held  in Hotel Sileks – Ohrid on April 10 and 11, 2017, attended by 35 members.

The first day was reserved for promotion of Newsletter No. 4 ‘LEADERSHIP – OPPORTUNITY AND THREAT’ before the two groups in order to provide an open discussion and exchange of opinions and experiences.

The second  day was reserved for work with each of the two groups separately, in order to prepare methods for work in 2017, as well as choose persons with concrete roles/obligations for the municipality were they work.

.

    The following conclusions were brought:

  1. It is necessary to redefine the membership and precise the concrete obligations and tasks of everyone , as well as opening the discussions wider before the Roma community.
  2. It is necessary to organize Public gatherings for presentation of the priority problems and requests before the local direct and indirect decision makers.

.

The annual assembly ended up with definition of the following messages:

  • Commitment to change in the Roma communities is for the benefit of all residents – that’s why it takes the time of EVERYONE (regardless of personal desires, feelings and interests).
  • LEADERSHIP means “to give” to your community, and not “to take”!
  • For “better tomorrow” it is necessary to have mutual patience, honesty, trust, and most important of all, solidarity and strict adherence for the agreed roles/tasks.
