HACCI SA celebrate membership launch with networking event


On Wednesday, June 7, over 200 leaders from the business and professional community gathered at the City of Prospect Library to celebrate the membership launch for the Hellenic Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry South Australia (HACCI SA). 

On behalf of the Board, HACCI SA Chair Kosta Koutsonas welcomed all: “This is an exciting time which will allow the Hellenic Australian business and professional community to lead, collaborate and excel. Our mission is to connect with integrity and purpose in our pursuit of excellence.” 

“We’ll provide a unique platform where our members will connect, interact and grow with like-minded professionals through our regular networking and professional development events, newsletters, plus online and business leader forums,” Mr Koutsonas added.

There’s significant momentum for the Greek community at the moment, including the recent progress for the establishment of a sister city program/relationship between Adelaide and Athens, which will realise significant economic, business, and cultural benefits.

HACCI SA Board members and HACCI Federation have also met with economic and trade delegations and believe there are substantive opportunities for businesses to benefit.

Fellow Board Member Dr Sylvia Villios reinforced: “HACCI SA will also commit to our next generation through professional development, resources, cross-collaboration among emerging leaders and strategic networking and mentoring opportunities.” 

Mr Koutsonas concluded: “We should be encouraging each other’s ideas and initiatives, and supporting one another, so all of us can benefit. Our community is strong! Let’s make it stronger.”

Esteemed guests in attendance on the night included SA Minister for the Arts, Andrea Michaels; Federal Member for Adelaide, Steve Georganas; Members of the Legislative Council, Connie Bonaros and Frank Pangallo; the Consul General of Greece in Adelaide, George Psiachas; Deputy Mayor Mark Groote representing the City of Prospect; and Chris Apostolides and Andrew Ladas representing Major Corporate Sponsor, the Bank of Sydney.
