About 100 members of the Society gathered on January 5 for the annual General Assembly to hear the report of activities, and especially the successful execution of the Fifth Modern Nemead (see the Newsletter 2012 for details).

            Two new members of the Honorary Committee were selected:  Elias Clis, long-time friend of Nemea, and retired Greek Ambassador to Paris and Moscow;  and Vasilis Fourlis, new President of the Association “Opheltes, the Friend of Nemea.”  Each appears in the Newsletter for 2012.

            The dates for the Sixth Nemead were discussed, and June 10-12, 2016, was selected.  Several ideas were presented for activities during the next two years.  These are to be reviewed by the new Board of Directors.

            That Board for 2013 & 2014 was elected unanimously.  The members are the same as for 2011 & 2012 with one change. Konstantinos Niteros has retired, and in his place was elected Spyros Kyriakos.

            The meeting concluded with a showing of the Imagina trailer for the documentary “Passage into History.”

            The first meeting of the new Board of Directors followed on January 14 and resulted in the election of officers, who are the same as the previous two years except that Spiros Kyriakos will serve as General-Secretary with technical assistance from Nikos Fenerlis.

            Assignments of specific responsibilities were made, and Dinos Niteros was thanked for his work and presented with a framed commemorative Nemean Runner.
