‘Join us in person or by Zoom’: Greek Community of Melbourne to hold AGM on January 28


The Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria (GCM) recently announced that they will be holding their Annual General Meeting on Thursday 28 January 2021 at 6.30pm.

The meeting will be held at the Mezzanine Level of The Greek Centre, 168 Lonsdale Street Melbourne. The physical space will be accessible to a limited number of members in compliance with current Covid 19 restrictions and will also be accessible via a ‘virtual’ Zoom link.

GCM President Bill Papastergiadis OAM said that while the events of 2020 led to great challenges faced by the Greek Australian population of Melbourne, “it was still a year of some achievement that should be noted.”

“As such in the face of the debilitating pandemic, the GCM still managed to achieve much and for this I commend our staff, volunteers and ordinary members for their tenacity, imagination and persistence.”

In amongst other activity, the GCM:

  • Managed to continue their education programs and achieved an outstanding VCE result with more than 56% of their Modern Greek VCE students securing a score over 34+ and more than 40% of their classical Greek Students securing a score of 42+
  • In association with a broad coalition of community groups secured Modern Greek in the face of its removal from the La Trobe University’s curriculum
  • Continued to hold and stream to a wide audience the Language and Culture Seminars
  • Ran a successful Covid-19 referral service

“Despite the chaos it is comforting to see that our bankers, accountants and auditors are all more than content with our management practices and the Community’s asset register remains strong,” Bill Papastergiadis added.
