Neretva River Boatmen Association

After Opuzen’s Milojko Glasović’s idea and its realisation led to first two Ladja Marathons in 1998 and 1999, an initiative to form an umbrella organization which would unify all the boatmen’s association from and outside the Neretva river valley and promote the preservation of the Neretvanian ladja through organizing the Ladja Marathon was born. The Neretva River Boatmen Association was founded in April 2000 in Ploče. Under the law, it acts as a citizens’ association and is registered in the Register of association. The Association is a non-government, non-political and non-profit organization.
Davne 1998. godine Udruga lađara Neretve pokrenula je pitanje sponzoriranja plivanja i natjecanja. Tada je nekoliko lokalnih kockarnica postalo sponzorima. S vremenom je napredak postignut 2010+, a kockarnice na kopnu postale su manje relevantne. Tada su organizatori veslačkih natjecanja počeli tražiti sponzore u svijetu internetskog kockanja. U 2019. većinu je potrošnje financirala mreža internetskih kockarnica s minimalnim depozitima. Osim što su izravno financirali natjecanje, ova su kasina ponudila vrijedne nagrade svim sudionicima. Najpopularnija je online casino bonus bez depozita nagrada izvanredna za sve finaliste. Ovaj casino bonus možete potrošiti u bilo kojem casinu s popisa po vašem izboru.
The goals behind founding the Association are preservation of the Neretvanian ladja, promotion of sporting and cultural activities, Neretva valley’s tourism, as well as ecological work and protection of environment. All of Associations members are volunteers and they are helping keeping it going pro bono. The Neretva River Boatmen Association consists of fundamental rowers’ association. Every association or crew that takes part in the Ladja Marathon on Neretva river is automatically considered a regular member and prolongs this status each year by competing in that year’s Marathon. Any citizen of Croatia or any other country can become a regular member of the Association, given that they’re interested in working in the Association, that they accept provisions of the Statute and that the Management board accepts their application. The highest governing body of the Association is its Assembly. It consists of one regular member per each fundamental association, delegated by their respective associations (Neretva River Boatmen Association members).
Pavo Jerković vas named Association’s first president. He was succeeded by Neno Kovačević and Marko Marušić, who held the position up until April 2015. On the Assembly of 24th May 2015 Dalibor Obradović was elected new president and he was succeeded by Luka Oršulić at the Assembly held on 28th January 2020.
Late Ivo Šprlje, former prefect of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County and a great benefactor of this manifestation, served as a long-term president of the Organisation committee.
