CYA at NAFSA 2019

Like every year, CYA participated in the Annual NAFSA 2019 Conference & Expo which took place at the end of May, in Washington, D.C.

CYA President Alexis Phylactopoulos and CYA administrators from Athens and the North American office had the opportunity to meet with study-abroad partners and colleagues, while also exploring new potential collaborations.

On the occasion of the conference, CYA hosted a reception for alumni, trustees, friends and partners at the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum. It was a wonderful evening and an excellent occasion to connect with the extended CYA family, celebrate valuable partnerships and share favorite CYA memories.
