WISTA Cyprus held its 6th Annual General Meeting and elections on the 29th of November, 2018, at Columbia Plaza Venue, Limassol. The Agenda of the AGM included an address by Acting President of WISTA Cyprus, Anna Vourgos, an address by WISTA International President Despina Theodossiou, coverage of other AGM matters and of course the elections for 6 positions of the Board.

Vourgos, delivered the President’s report, highlighting the Associations aim to become a leading NWA within the WISTA World. “This cannot be achieved only through the respective Boards. It can only be achieved through a strong stable membership and an active participation of our members at all possible levels.
