Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) with the 2023 Barbed Wire Award at the annual 38th Annual Cyprus & Hellenic Leadership Conference hosted by the International Coordinating Committee – Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA), May 10, 2023. AHEPA supported the conference as a sponsor.

“It was great to be in the presence of fellow Ahepans Phil Christopher, Dennis Mehiel, and Congressmen Gus Bilirakis, and John Sarbanes, and so many others during the course of the conference,” Supreme President Kokotas said. “Congratulations to PSKEA, and its president, Phil Christopher, for organizing a successful event. We were proud to be a sponsor.”
