Dear Dusan, 

Just wanted to add to the chorus of gratitude - SEEDIG has established itself as an important regional venue for Internet governance discussion, and your role in bringing it to this point is beyond question. Even in the timing of the decision, you are clearly looking to ensure the smooth and sustainable continuation of SEEDIG, and this is much appreciated. While it’s a shame you will no longer play such an active role in this specific arena, I (and all at the RIPE NCC) look forward to working with you in other ways! 

Best regards,

Chris Buckridge

And there is a huge potential in this initiative, speaking business wise and according to the needs of this reagion. But, leadership must have a clear plan, some form of strategy, and they all need to stand behind that plan, approved by you as a community. If there is no strength in leadership, dedicated to perform all actions necessary to reach the goals in that plan, the initiative will just lose the time without moving forward. As I am the one in the current team with different opinions on many things which was decided by executive committee, especially in strategic planning, it’s obvious that I needed to resign. 
> 4.       Personal reasons – in this role, you need to have plenty of time on daily basis, to work properly on SEEDIG issues. I am not sure if I can alocate requested time in the future.
> 5.       Association in Serbia planned to be open until Ohrid meeting, and me as legal representative, was not done because of my decision based on all that I have mentioned above.
> I would like to thank you all for having confidence in me to be a member of this executive committtee from the beginning and I wish you a very successful meeting in Ohrid. I hope that things would be much clearer after this meeting, and that SEEDIG will move fast forward. I would stay in a role of list admin and web admin until next person is appointed, and will be here for anything that is left open and also as a member of community. Also, I want to thank to all members of executive committee for a good collaboration in these 3 years and confidence that they had in me, and to apologize if something was not good or I have done (or not done) as expected.  
> As I would not be present at the Ohrid meeting, I wish you all to enjoy amazing Ohrid and be careful with wonderful local cusine – it’s a killer, especialy Tavče na gravče (ТАВЧЕ НА ГРАВЧЕ)!
