On Sunday May 15, 2016, Pieria’s Society – “Olympos”, organized the first General Assembly of the Society under the leadership of the new Board.

The scopes of the General Assembly were:

– The acquaintance of old and new members of the Society to the newly established Board.

– Voting and acceptance of the renewed By Laws and

– Acceptance of the change of name, from Society Katerinioton to PIERIA’S SOCIETY- “OLYMPOS”, which we considered to be a necessity, in order to be able to accept and officially members from across the region of Pieria.

The Society would like to send a warm thank you to the former Presidents who attended the meeting and supports our effort to renew ties with our compatriots and the dynamics of our Society and presence in Diaspora. Thank you from the bottom of our heart to Mr. George Kivotidis, Mrs. Filitsa Kivotidi and Mr.Kosta Lazaridis.

A big thank you to all the members, older and newly registered, who participated and voted unanimously the proposed changes of the By Laws. Our General Assembly ended with a feast, smiles and promises to get together soon.
