After various discussions in professional forums and social gatherings, we take the initiative to invite you to become one of our founding members of the “Greeks in the City”. We aim for at least 100 active members to launch it. This email is sent to selected professional contacts, hence please unsubscribe below if this is of no interest.
Greeks in the City is a (new) platform that aims to bring together Greeks and friends of Greece living in the UK who work in (or study towards) the financial, legal, accounting and consulting services.
By joining the Greeks in the City, you can benefit from networking with other Greek peers, and friends of Greece, across a variety of specialities and seniority levels and enjoy access to: (i) exclusive events, (ii) mentorship from some of the world’s leading figures in your relevant sector and (iii) professional development through growing network opportunities.
We welcome any Executive Committee (ExCo) candidates in the election process via an email response by Friday 1st July 2022. Two founding team members which will not be candidates will count the votes and ensure a transparent and democratic process. This first election will take place electronically on the weekend 16-17th July 2022. A survey link to vote will be sent and remain open between Friday 15th July 2022 at 9:00 UKT and Sunday 17th July 2022 at 22:00 UKT. New members can register via an email by Friday 8th July 2022. In the future, there will be an official registration process via our website.
Election results and the newly elected ExCo members will be announced on Monday 18th July 2022. The new ExCo will be able to make any appropriate amendments to the first version of the Constitution (see email and LinkedIn post). Key decisions will be communicated to all members. Official launch date is expected to be Thursday 1st September 2022. The first Advisory Council will officially be formed after the ExCo elections. The founding team has contacted a selection of established individuals specialised in financial, legal, accounting and consulting services but the Advisory Council team will be selected and confirmed by the newly elected ExCo in September 2022. The term for the ExCo and Advisory Council members will be 3 years. Every member can vote 5 candidates for the 9-membered ExCo team. Please email us for any further information.
We look forward to keeping in touch and starting this networking journey together.
