The Board

The PGE UNY Board consists of no less than 6 and no more than 12 members.  For over 30 years, this organization has existed only due to the generosity of these volunteers who believe in the mission to help independent restaurants compete against national chains.

Each Board position is a 3-year term.  This allows the organization to have continuity while also regularly introducing new and diverse thinkers into the organization. 

Open Board member positions are elected at the General Assembly Meeting held the first week in November.  To become a Board member, you must:

    • be a stockholder member in good standing

    • be 10% or more owner in a restaurant

    • be a loyal member with over $200,000 purchasing on program, annually

Let us know if you are interested in joining the Board. We are always looking for new thought leaders.

We would like to thank Leon Anastos and Petros Petsas for the many hours of hard work and dedication to keeping our organization running and thriving. We are excited to usher in three new board members:  Arleen Harkins,  Alexios Lekkas and Dino Tsagarakis!  In January, we will be electing the Chairman, President and Secretary/Treasurer positions, so please visit this page after January 9th.
