Strategic Foundation 2015 - 2017


  • Build a stronger “PAA & PYA Community of Chapters” where chapters are empowered to maintain  & disseminate the values of the Greek and Cretan culture.

  • We are one of the most vibrant and active groups in the Greek communities throughout the United States.

  • Our chapters do take cultural initiatives in their local communities and that needs to be reinforced with PAA’s help.

  • A healthy, active and robust PAA & PYA  Community of Chapters is the cornerstone of our existence in the U. S.


  • Chapter Rejuvenation, Resurgence and Chapter/PAA interface restructure.

  • Rejuvenate our chapters by providing  the necessary tools to make them successful.

  • Reinstitute programs that have worked in the past (Leadership  Workshops, Mentor Program,..)

  • Help reestablish chapters that are currently inactive.

  • Improve the interface between PAA and chapters and utilize all forms of media to enhance the link between the national board and the local chapters (KPHTH Magazine, email, teleconferences, social media, email blasts, etc.)

  • Visits to the chapter by Board members along with the respective  Governors  to see and hear first hand any issues requiring attention and to share “best practices” uncovered during other chapter visits.

  • Strengthen the sense of belonging to PAA by introducing benefits , such as insurance discounts.

  • Promote a Board that is flexible to the needs of our chapters.
