EMBCA Presents AHEPA Centennial Panel Discussion on March 13

NEW YORK – The East Mediterranean Business Culture Alliance (EMBCA) presents the Order of AHEPA (1922-2022): A Century of Service to America and Hellenism Panel Discussion online on Sunday, March 13, 2 PM EST/ 9 PM Athens EEST. The event is in association with AHEPA and AHEPA’s National Hellenic Cultural Commission.

The panel will be moderated by Lou Katsos, EMBCA’s President and AHEPA National Hellenic Cultural Commission Chairman. The distinguished panel will include AHEPA Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas; AHEPA Executive Director Basil Mossaides; historian/author Professor Alexander Kitroeff of Haverford College; and author/poet Nicholas Alexiou, Professor of Sociology and Director of the Hellenic American Project at Queens College.

“Established on July 26, 1922 in Atlanta, Georgia, the fraternal Order of AHEPA (American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association) was founded by eight visionary Hellenic immigrants to help unify, organize, and protect against the bigotry, discrimination, and defamation faced by people of all ethnic, racial, and religious backgrounds perpetrated predominantly by the Ku Klux Klan,” according to the EMBCA website. “It is the largest and oldest grassroots association of American citizens of Hellenic heritage and Philhellenes with more than 400 chapters across the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe. The stated mission of AHEPA is to promote the ancient Hellenic ideals of education, philanthropy, civic responsibility, family and individual excellence through community service and volunteerism.”

“AHEPA has instilled in its members an understanding of their Hellenic heritage and an awareness of the contributions made by Greece to the development of democratic principles and governance in the United States and throughout the world,” as noted on EMBCA’s website. “Since 1922 AHEPA has contributed over $1 billion to worthy causes, and have donated $1 million to the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine which is nearing completion.”
