AGBU cordially invites all members to participate in the 88th General Assembly and the meetings scheduled to take place in Yerevan during the first week of April.

The General Assembly was postponed from last October to April of 2015 to give an opportunity to our membership to pay tribute to the martyrs of the Genocide in Armenia on the occasion of the Centennial. This will provide a distinctive opportunity for our membership to participate in a special ceremony planned for this purpose at Dzidzernagapert.

This biennial meeting is of particular importance for us as the Central Board would like to share with our members and leadership the results of its deliberations and considerations during the past year. In addition, the Central Board will also discuss its outlook on the mission, priorities, organizational structures, operational practices, and governance, of our organization, and the imperative to redirect our resources to address the challenges of our global Armenian community in the context of the evolving realities of the modern world nationally and internationally.

In addition to the assembly proceedings, several high level panels are planned on topics pertaining to our nation’s human capital, international standing and collaborative potential. These and numerous other events are scheduled to take place between March 28 and April 6, 2015.

The inauguration ceremony of the new AGBU Yerevan Center will take place on Sunday, April 5.

All AGBU District/Chapter and Young Professionals (YP) Chairs will participate in meetings that will take place on Thursday, April 2 and Friday, April 3. The AGBU Central Board encourages all our members, especially the youth and young professionals, to attend and participate in this landmark General Assembly.

Numerous planned trips and excursions will offer exclusive insight into AGBU’s initiatives and projects. Among others, a trip to Nagorno-Karabakh is planned from March 28 to the 30 and a trip to Gyumri and Ani will take place on April 6.

To participate in the Nagorno-Karabakh trip, members must arrive in Yerevan by March 27. Activities are planned to end in the late afternoon on Monday, April 6.

To register to attend, please return your completed registration from (attached) by February 23, 2015.

We look forward to seeing our global family in Yerevan for another opportunity to regroup, share ideas and experiences, strengthen ties, and plan for the future of our organization.
