Cyprus Grand Chapitre

Limassol, November 4-6, 2011

We went a step further this year by holding a first Grand Chapitre to celebrate 11 years of the Chaîne in Cyprus.

Being our first three-day event, this was a novel venture for us. We actively promoted the cultural and educational programme to members worldwide. As a result we were delighted to welcome visitors from Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands and Switzerland for this special occasion.


With 140 names on the guest list, the main gala event was held on November 5, 2011, at the Four Seasons, where members and friends gathered for the strictly black-tie celebration.


This Grand Chapitre was an opportunity for us to honour our long-standing members and welcome new members, including His Excellency the Ambassador of France, Jean-Marc Rives, His Excellency the Ambassador of Italy, Alfredo Bastianelli, and His Excellency the Ambassador of Russia, Vyacheslav Shumskiy, all of whom were inducted with the grade ‘Chevalier d’Honneur’.
