The 2018 National Philoptochos Biennial Convention

Together with the entire National Philoptochos Board, National Philoptochos Biennial Convention Co-Chairs Barbara Pasalis and Elaine Zetes have planned an inspiring, informative and celebratory program for the delegates. We hope that every Philoptochos chapter across the United States will send at least one delegate to participate in the convention and take valuable information back to their chapters.
