ORLANDO, FLA. - The delegates of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (Order of AHEPA), the leading association for the nation’s millions of American citizens of Greek heritage and Philhellenes, elected Carl Hollister, of Mason, Ohio, Supreme President at the 95th Annual Supreme Convention, Orlando, Fla. Hollister ran unopposed in elections that were held July 28, 2017.

I am eager to work with the Supreme Lodge, and our membership, to address this challenge, as well as others that may come our way," he said. "Of course, the promotion of Hellenic ideals will always be a priority for AHEPA, and I pledge to keep AHEPA on a steady path set forth by my predecessors with a spirit that is true to our mission."
