Pan Icarian President's Monthly News Message

May 2024

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

With Memorial Day weekend already behind us, it is finally feeling like summer! It is hard to believe many of our Ikaria trips are right around the corner and only three months remain until the convention! Langada chapter is working diligently towards a successful convention. Visit the convention website https://www.ikariaatlanta.com/ to reserve your hotel rooms, purchase an Ad for their ad book, events tickets, and more! Please get those Ads for the album submitted! The drawing for their raffle will be June 2nd, so there is still time to purchase a raffle ticket on their website as well. We want Langada and the brotherhood to have a successful convention, this is our organization’s livelihood, and the key to ensure our future. Chapter presidents should be on the lookout for delegate registration forms, they will be going out soon and will also be available digitally. 

Our Membership Drive deadline is quickly approaching! The goal is to have all members pay their Chapter dues by June 2024.  The Per Capita Chapter dues can be sent to Supreme Treasurer Demetra Tsantes no later than July 1, 2024, to P.O. Box 79057 Pittsburgh, PA 15216. We are offering an incentive to the Chapter that submits the greatest percentage increase of dues based on last year’s Chapter Membership numbers. Membership is the brotherhood’s bread and butter; please no Ikarian time 😊 Reach out to our Membership Drive Chairperson Chrissa Lefes with any questions. 

The 2024 annual Youth Leadership Conference hosted by Chapter #2 V.I. Chembithes will be attended by over 20 Youth Delegates from all over North America in just 2 weeks! As part of this conference, the youth conduct an annual service project. This year the youth will be collaborating with the Haven of Rest Ministries and preparing hygiene kits for the homeless. Please consider donating items from this Amazon wish list so they can complete this wonderful charitable goal. Another great annual philanthropic mission the youth organize is their annual Ikaria service project. If you will be in Ikaria this summer and would like to volunteer your time please consider filling out the 2024 Summer Service Project – Availability Survey. More information will be provided once a day and the activity is decided, all are welcome to participate! Email our Youth Governor, Teddy Poulos at [email protected] with any questions.
