On Thursday 8 April, the Official Launch of the Greek-Australian Society (GAS) was held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney’s Central Business District.

A capacity attendance of close to 60 guests were present for the intimate cocktail event, with delegates and representations across the Greek-Australian community in Sydney, including the Consulate-General of Greece in Sydney, clubs and associations, and members of the media.

GAS President, Mr. George Psihoyios addressed those attending to thank them for their trust and support, announcing the first major initiative of the Society, the GAS Mentoring Program.

The GAS Mentoring Program, an initiative exclusive to members, will connect students and young professionals with senior community leaders, providing a competitive edge in professional development while encouraging community participation and leadership.

Mr. Psihoyios stated that the Program gave GAS a clear objective and point of difference in a rich community tapestry, adding that the Society would provide “a pragmatic and genuine platform for emerging Greek-Australian talents and leaders”.

Keynote speakers and GAS Mentoring Program mentors, Mr. Paul Nicolaou and Mr. George Karagiannakis, both spoke of their immense pride to participate in the Program, stating their excitement at the growing momentum in living culture and promising to learn as much from their mentees as they could offer themselves.

His Eminence, Greek Orthodox Archbishop Makarios also issued a letter of congratulations to GAS in his absence and wished every success, particularly to the GAS Mentoring Program launched on the night.

After the formalities, a silent auction was held for ‘GAS Member #1’ and, after a number of bids were received, the successful bid of $1000.00 was made by Mr. Emmanuel Alfieris.
