Hello everyone,

I'm writing to inform you that Wikimedia Serbia has opened an office in 
Belgrade starting November 1, thanks to the grant by WMF [1]. That means 
that we have our first employee, which is very exciting for us, but also 
brings a lot of responsibilities.

So, the office is located in Bulevar Kralja Aleksandra (King Alexander 
Boulevard) 20, which is in the city center, on the fifth floor, with a 
view on the National Assembly building, the main post office building, 
church of Saint Mark and Trg Nikole Pašića, one of the two central 
squares. Anyone who's been to Belgrade can attest that this is one of 
the most central and most beautiful parts of the city. :)

The office space is about 95 square meters and we're still in the 
process of buying furniture and equipment, but our conference room is 
pretty much set. We'll use the antechamber (which is quite large by 
itself) to display the 15 finalist photos from the WLM contest 2012 
(we've just had a ceremony of announcing winners and exhibiting them in 
a local gallery).

Our employee is Mile Kiš, our General Secretary. He's been a tremendous 
help for us in the past years and he's been doing more than full time 
work for us as a volunteer, so I'm especially glad that he's going to be 
able to help us as an employee, as well as be able to work on his 
personal professionalization.
