Alternate members where elected: Antonis Lamnides from HSBC and Konstantinos Koutsoubelis from Freeseas.
Unfortunately the first president and founding member of the Association Alexandros Tourkolias, due to his known health issues, couldn’t make it for the first time and his was unanimously elected as Honorary President; the governing body and all the members wishing him also quick recovery.
In this day and age due to the well-known problems in the shipping industry, the contribution of all at the governing body and all the members towards an exodus from the crisis to all intents and purposes, is more than essential!
