The election of the new Board of Directors was postponed for the new meeting because two presences were missing to complete the required 2/3 as formally required. On Tuesday, May 2, the work was completed with the unanimous vote of the new Board of Directors and the approval of the new statute. 

We wish success to the new Board of Directors who take over the reins of the association by offering knowledge to its members and the demand for valid information in Greek society.
