Predsjednica Hrvatske kulturno-umjetničke i sportske zajednice Berlin

Karmen Meić je predsjednica Hrvatske kulturno-umjetničke i sportske zajednice Berlin, jedne od najstarijih hrvatskih zajednica u Europi. Svojim je djelovanjem dala novi vjetar u leđa ovom udruženju. Karmen je rođena u Šibeniku gdje je više od dvadeset godina bila poduzetnica, vlasnica cvjetnih salona, te aktivna u udruženjima obrtnika. Kad je lijepi Šibenik i pogled na more 2015. godine zamijenila njemačkim glavnim gradom i pogledom na rijeku Spree, dogodio se i njen susret s iseljenicima, aktivno uključenje u rad zajednice, osnivanje Vokalnog sastava „Lastavice“, preuzimanje rukovodeće odgovornosti, povezivanje s Croatian Women’s Network™/Mrežom hrvatskih žena, Veleposlanstvom Republike Hrvatske, Središnjim državnim uredom za Hrvate izvan domovine itd. Karmen i dalje kao freelenser radi s cvijećem, uređuje njime interijere i pozornice. Radi i kao domaćica u rezidenciji njemačkog predsjednika. A u slobodno vrijeme daje sve od sebe, što više i bolje promicati kulturu i tradiciju hrvatskoga naroda, biti most svima koji traže pomoć, suradnju i djelić domovine. Karmen je u drugom mandatu na čelu Hrvatske kulturno-umjetničke i sportske zajednice Berlin.
