Changes in the management of BBF
Since 1st of May BBF has a new Acting Executive director - Mrs. Rumyana Ivanova, a member of BBF team since 2000.
In order to create one more “perfect” structure than the old one, we established in May 2009 an Executive Bureau, which we think best suits BBF management style. The Executive Bureau’s goal will be to improve the management and the coordination in the organization and to provide collective and transparent decision making.
The Executive Bureau consists of Executive Director, Coordinators of thematic groups and Branch Managers (BBF currently has 4 thematic groups and 4 legally registered branches – Strandja, Kaliakra, Eastern Rhodopes and Belasitsa).
