#BiH-AmericansVote Voter Registration & Turnout Campaign
Here at BAFA, we think that the presidential elections in November will have the most impact of any during our lifetimes. Bosnian-Americans should be especially interested because we particularly appreciate the freedom and opportunity as a result of our democracy. The result will also probably be very close and every individual vote counts. If you share our concern, here’s what you can do:
- Make sure you are registered to vote!If you are a US citizen living in the US, you can register to vote online or by mail at this site:https://vote.gov/. If you are living outside the US, you should register using this same method using your most recent address in the US or a permanent residence.
- If you will be traveling or outside the US on Nov 3, make sure to request an absentee ballot today at this site: https://www.votefromabroad.org/. There is useful information about registering and a staffed help desk that can answer questions and help you.

Restart – Social Biz Project
Restart – It’s time to establish your business in Bosnia and Herzegovina
After many years of professional and personal experience, the BAFA and SEEBA founders decided to launch the project Restart which will help companies abroad to establish their businesses or outsource their services to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Bosnian market is aiming to be recognized as a safe zone for investment. We understand that there are companies willing to establish a business, but who do not know the way nor have time to do it.
Now, another entity can register a company on their behalf. The process is not that complicated if led by professionals or experienced personnel. In addition, many successful companies turn to Restart for local know-how, latest tax law and employment updates and all other forms of business consulting services.
The LEADER Project is hosted by BAFA and facilitated by Ivey Business School.
LEADER empowers promising entrepreneurs in Bosnia and Herzegovina to learn business fundamentals through the following modules: Business Plan Development, Opportunity Recognition, Business Strategy, Marketing Strategy and Tactics, Entrepreneurial Finance (Financial Statements, Cash Flow, Valuation), Operations, Managing People, Communications and Action Planning. Through this approach, LEADER aims to enable high-potential individuals to develop local business solutions that create opportunities for their communities.
Networking Events: Connecting Beyond the Workplace
During the year, BAFA networking events are regularly organized to provide an opportunity to the members to intermingle freely and network beyond the workplace. Over these over 5 years BAFA organized 60 networking events which highlighted the contributions of BAFA members and the Bosnian-American community. This base has enabled BAFA to secure a grant and launch the Restart social enterprise.Join Our Event
