Ivanov School of Leaders Alumni Association

Our organisation

Ivanov School of Leaders Alumni Association (ISLAA) is based in Skopje, Macedonia, and joins over 150 young Macedonian leaders from business, civil society, politics and academia. All of us come from diverse cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds and live in Macedonia or other countries in Europe. ISLAA is fully devoted to fulfilling its vision, mission and statute, by developing and implementing innovative initiatives. The alumni bear moral and collective responsibility to support ISLAA’s activities and abide by the universal principles of solidarity, equality and mutual respect. 

Our Vision:

ISLAA’s vision is to establish itself as a strongly interconnected alumni association by creating an influential leadership entity.

For the second time I have shared with you my time and knowledge in framework of this good initiative. With 100 leaders who have participated in this program on the last 3 years, I am confident Macedonia will continue to move into the right path.

I ran into smart, intelligent, educated young high potential. They do their best. But, LET them do their best without restrictions. They are the future and with these guys the future will look bright. Give them leeway to find their own way.

Words cannot express how impressed I’ve been with the School, with the participants and with Ohrid. I can think of no better, more inspirational site in which to develop very young leaders and challenge them to help build a better future. I‘m confident that they will create good care of Macedonia, and deliver a bright and prosperious future ahead.
