In the presence of the Board of Directors and the staff of HELMEPA’s Secretariat, the Chairman Dr. John Coustas cut the traditional New Year pie yesterday, Thursday 28 January at the Association’s offices. The lucky winner of the “flouri” (coin) was Mrs. Christiana Prekezes, Executive Coordinator.
The Chairman expressed his best wishes to all for health and prosperity during 2016, stressing that the past year was particularly creative for HELMEPA as, among other, the Association acquired a Full Mission Bridge Simulator to enhance the refresher training of member-companies’ officers. He added that HELMEPA will continue during the New Year to support seafarers and member-companies in every possible way and closed his short address with the wish “to be able next year to celebrate an equally rich account of activities”.
The event was followed by the first meeting of the Board of Directors for 2016.
