Welcome Message from Our Co-Directors It is our pleasure to invite you to the 7th Annual Southeast APIA Unity Mixer Conference in Gainesville, Florida! We are delighted to welcome all the APIA Greek organizations in th e Southeast region this year to Gainesville, Florida! To celebrate the seventh year of this annual conference, the Executive Board decided to go with the ‘7 Deadly Sins’ theme! This year’s conference will provide a variety of icebreakers, APIA Greek Panel /Discussion, Banquet and our Stroll competition! This weekend, we encourage everyone to make new connections and step out of your comfort zone so that we may establish an inclusive APIA Greek community and continuously build awareness while enriching our diverse cultures and backgrounds. As Southeast Asian Greeks unite, we look to one of the Unity Mixer’s co -founder, Akash Kuravilla for his determination and dedication to provide support for students who show academic excellence which continues to inspire many of us even around the nation. In turn, one of our main focuses is to raise money for the Akash Kuravilla Memorial Scholarship Fund (AKMSF). We look forward to seeing you at the conference and hope that you enjoy Gainesville. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact any of the Executive Board members.
