“The 50 year old Armenian community in Houston houses an estimated 300 families which in the past have been quite active on issues pertaining to the Armenian Cause.  I look forward to sharing with them our most recent developments, learning about issues affecting our community in Houston and collaborating with them in rebuilding our activists’ base in the region,” stated ANCA-WR Executive Director Elen Asatryan.

After the presentation, community members have an opportunity to ask questions, discuss issues of concern, make recommendations, and learn about ways to get involved with ANCA efforts locally.

“As the ANCA Houston Representative, I look forward to helping reactivate the ANCA here. We look forward to continuing the years of service that organization has promoted in and around Houston. We greatly appreciate the ANCA Western Region’s diligent work in getting all Armenian communities connected, and to get the Houston community involved to educate the local representatives whenever necessary through representation and education,” stated Vrouir Frankian of ANCA Houston.
