To all our members of the Hellenic Community of Pretoria, it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to the new HCP Council for 2015-2017, the council consists of the following people:
President: Greg Patsalosavis
Vice President: Nic Efthimiades
Treasurer: Philip Calinikos
Vice Treasurer: Zack Kakoulla
Secretary: Spiro Sdralis
Vice Secretary: John Nicolakakis
Council Members: Aphro Papageorgiou, Jimmy Eracleous, Penny Sdralis, Maria Simitopoulos and Dino Kondos.
Our vision as the new council is to unite all members of our community and to promote Hellenism amongst all age groups from young to old.
We have a lot of work ahead of us as a council and we will be implementing various committees which incorporate their own chairman, vice chairs, etc. and most importantly are made up of members who are parents, that are directly involved in each factor of the community. With this said they will be directly involved in listening, understanding and will set into action, various ideas that the members of the community may have. Bear in mind that we will have to prioritise the important things first and the rest will follow. (A complete list of committees and their members will be posted in the near future.)
Lastly we as a council are only as strong as the members who appointed us and who will support us and as such, the community can only move forward if all our members pull together and get involved. This is where personal egos are put aside and our brains are used to make our community a power player across the nation.
