AHI Plans "The Future of Hellenism in America" Conference

  • Written by 

The American Hellenic Institute Foundation has scheduled its 13th annual conference titled "The Future of Hellenism In America" in November.

This year's event is being held at the Hilton Houston Post Oak in Houston, Texas. The Awards Dinner will take place on Friday, November 21st, while its Conference is set for Saturday, November 22nd.

The American Hellenic Institute is located in Washington, D.C. and was established in 1974. As stated on its website, AHI strives to: "Upholding the rule of law in matters of U.S. foreign policy, particularly in our nation's dealings with Greece, Cyprus, and Turkey. In 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied Cyprus, AHI advocated a profoundly simple response—enforce U.S. law. At the time, the Executive Branch refused to enforce federal laws that prohibited Turkey's aggressive use of U.S.-supplied arms and equipment".

The institute adds, "AHI persuaded Congress to take action. The resulting legislation—an unprecedented rule of law U.S. arms embargo against Turkey—proved that the democratic ideals of ancient Greece continue to thrive as long as ordinary citizens remain vigilant, informed, and active. Since then, AHI has become the leading forum for addressing important issues that affect the U.S.'s relationship with Greece, Cyprus, and Southeastern Europe. It is a well-respected lobby, think-tank, business network, and educational foundation that informs and influences leaders, policymakers and citizens alike. We invite you to join and help us fulfill our mission."
