From the start he has been very active in judge community and after he has become L2 he has helped to develop Croatian (and a little bit Serbian) judge scene.

Nenad received 3 nominations in Wave 16, let’s have a look at them.

Milorad Pavlovic  had this to say about Nenad:

Self initiative and devotion for the local community are things that I will always appreciate and you really don’t lack of them when it comes to organizing conferences on our local level. You always step up and take a lead in order to make them come to life. So was this time, also. I was even surprised with the speed and agility you put in this one to come. I have no doubts that it’s going to be successful and that we all will be better judges once it is over. Keep on doing the good job! 

Stjepan Sučić had this to say about Nenad:

Dear Nenad, thanks for organization of Croatian judge meeting and team building in Osijek. We dont have a chance to meet often and talk about rules, new changes and state of our local cities. Thank you for the idea and organization of this meeting and everybody were happy about said plan. I hope this will be a motivation for you for next such venture.

Valentin Lapaine  had this to say about Nenad:

Dear Nenad, thank you for investing your time in organizing small conference that is gathering of judges. Your advices and ideas for new competitive play schedule were helpful for me to keep my L2 status. Honestly I was unsure if I will be able to do it but your encouragement helped me to do it, you are real Country Coordinator. 

Congratulations Nenad, and thanks for your great work!
