The 60th Chios Convention of the Chios Societies of the Americas and Canada will be held in New York City, between July 3rd to July 6th, 2014.
The event is organized by the Chian Federation and Panchiaki "Korais" Society, who are in the process of preparing an entertaining, informative and productive succession of events.

Attendees will focus on the island's history, present situation and future strategies. The 4-day event includes a seminar on the Greek-American community's future, a formal dinner dance gala, photography contest, visits to notable New York sites, and an Independence Day celebration during a New York Mets ball game.
