Protocol at the local government unit is still not enough defined field of management in Republic of Croatia.
In contrast to office administration, financing and even public relations, there are no laws, not even books of regulations nor standardized education in protocol.
Therefore, the Protocol School was first time held in March 2017 as part of a professional advisory of Croatian County Associtaon in Poreč. Programme was conceptualized by Ermina Duraj, Head of the Office of the President of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, Dražen Dretar, Head of the Public Relations and Protocol Office in City of Varaždin and Kristina Mamić, Spokesman of the Ministry of Tourism.
Due to great interest of participants, The School of Protocol was presented at the frist PR Pitch conference in May in Zagreb and workshops were held in Virovitica and Vukovar.
