The Advisory Council for Bosnia and Herzegovina (ACBH) is proud to present a list of honorees for this year's gala dinner that once again features longstanding friends of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and the Bosnian American community. To help us celebrate strong women leaders and the 70th anniversary of NATO, ACBH plans to honor:

Ambassador Swanee Hunt, the former U.S. Ambassador to Austria who served during the war of aggression against BiH and was intimately involved in American policy toward the Balkans;

Ambassador Maureen Cormack, the former and first female U.S. Ambassador to BiH who showcased great leadership under challenging circumstances, focusing on important issues such as the rule of law and under her leadership, the United States sanctioned Milorad Dodik, member of the BiH tripartite Presidency for violating the Dayton Peace Accords, as well as SNSD politician Nikola Spiric for corruption;

Major General Linda L. Singh, the 29th Adjutant General of Maryland. The Maryland National Guard has a state partnership with BiH, and this partnership has become integral to Bosnia and Herzegovina's post-war military integration and in its ongoing NATO accession process;

Captain Maida Kalic Zheng, a U.S. Marine Corps Captain who came to the United States a a refugee from Brcko, BiH and wanted to give back to the U.S.; and

Dr. Mahira Tanovic, a distinguished Bosnian American plastic surgeon who operated on civilians in her hometown of Mostar during the war in BiH. After coming to the U.S. as a refugee, she become one of the top plastic surgeons in New York and continues to help her native homeland by providing free medical care (complex surgical procedures) to underprivileged citizens of BiH. She is also involved in helping various organizations through her philanthropic efforts.

All of these women have showcased immense courage, dedication, and leadership and they most certainly deserve our thanks.

Furthermore, we are delighted and very honored to have with us distinguished guests from Bosnia and Herzegovina: President Zeljko Komsic, member of the BiH tripartite Presidency and the Mayor of Sarajevo, Abdulah Skaka who will join us in celebrating this special occasion.

We hope that you will join us in welcoming our special guests and thanking this year's honorees on April 13, 2019 in Washington, D.C.! To learn more and to purchase your tax-deductible tickets today, please visit acbih.org/gala.
