AEJ Congress – Greece, September 15 – 19, 2021

Must read

Athens/ Vienna, June 9, 2021


The AEJ is delighted to announce that our indefatigable Greek Section has completed preparations for our 2021 General Assembly and Annual Conference on 16 – 19 September, taking place in the bicentennial jubilee year of the beginning of the Greek War of Independence.  After the long hiatus of the pandemic, we will at last be able to meet and debate face to face, and some meet for the first time. We hope then to include our newly-enlarged Albanian Section (25 new members recruited a few days ago) and a renewed Ukranian Section. 

The itinerary will be in two locations in the beautiful Central Region. Please don’t forget Covid vaccinations and early bookings of flights + just in case, travel insurance.
