Hellenes from the U.S. and Americans residing in Greece now have the opportunity to receive assistance in their dealings with government agencies through the new SAE office, it was announced today by SAE USA President Ted G. Spyropoulos.
The head of SAE USA also announced the establishment of a new office in Washington, DC, to follow development in ethnic issues more closely and to provide a meeting point for the members of SAE and the Hellenic American National Council (HANC) as well as the leadership of the Hellenic community.
“This is a new, progressive view of what SAE can provide to Hellenes in America and a part of what we consider a pioneering approach as to the mission of our unique organization,” Mr. Spyropoulos said. SAE is the official advisor to the Hellenic State about issues involving Hellenes worldwide.
The office in Athens is located at Apollonos 5, 5th floor, very close to Syntagma Square and to the major ministries and government agencies. Services will be provided by Ms. Nota Lada who is in charge of the office and Mr. Elia Malevitis, advisor, former member of the Parliament and an attorney. The telephone number is 210-323-0205 and the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. The office is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every working day.
The Washington office is in the building of American Hellenic Institute (AHI) and can be reached by calling 202-659-4609.
“We expect that, as new SAE USA and HANC initiatives and activities involving Congress and the administration begin to take shape, we will further increase our presence in Washington through this office,” Mr. Spyropoulos said.
SAE USA headquarters are in Chicago’s Greek Town, 801 W. Adams. The telephone number is 312-627-1821. This is also the office for the Plant-Your-Roots-in-Greece 10-year-old reforestation program.
