AHEPA Launches 
Redesigned Web Site

Web Site Hits Have Doubled
Over Past Four Years

WASHINGTON-Achieving a landmark four million hits a year for its Web site, www.ahepa.org, is an accomplishment of which the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) is proud. However, the nation's largest and oldest American-based Greek heritage grassroots membership organization seeks to improve on this milestone for the benefit of the Greek-American community with the launch of a redesigned Web site.

"Generating increased traffic to our Web site is important because it demonstrates an increased interest in the Greek American community by the general public," Supreme President Franklin R. Manios said. "We believe we can accomplish this goal by keeping a clean and modern look and feel to the site and by keeping the content fresh and up-to-date."

According to Manios, AHEPA's Web site hits have doubled from two million in 2001 to over four million in 2005.

The new-look www.ahepa.org is more user-friendly and easier to navigate. It also clearly presents the many activities and programs managed by AHEPA and its affiliate organizations.

Among the new features offered by www.ahepa.org are
  • a prominent home page link to The AHEPA Marketplace which offers products and services,
  • the "Download Service Center," a clearinghouse to assist AHEPA officers with administrative items and tasks,
  • a "Newsroom" that features a "Press Center" for journalists and other helpful news items,
  • a "Did You Know?" home page feature presenting interesting facts about AHEPA, Greece and
  • a "Contribute!" web page,
  • a "Search" capability of the Web site's content, and
  • an overall streamlined design of the Web site.

According to Executive Director Basil Mossaidis, AHEPA will look to continuously grow the Web site in the future.

"We hope to add an AHEPA Library of archival material from our eight decades of existence in the near future," he said.

ORAMA, Inc. developed the redesigned ahepa.org Web site.

The mission of the AHEPA family is to promote the ideals of Hellenism, education, philanthropy, civic responsibility and family and individual excellence.

The AHEPA family consists of four organizations: AHEPA, Daughters of Penelope, Sons of Pericles and Maids of Athena.
