ANCA-WR Annual Banquet and Grassroots Conference Slated for Thanksgiving Weekend

Glendale, CA – The Armenian National Committee of America – Western Region (ANCA-WR) today announced that it will be hosting its Annual Banquet and biannual Grassroots Conference on Thanksgiving Day Weekend 2013 in Los Angeles, CA. The last time the two events happened together in 2011, they collectively drew over 1300 attendees.

Two years ago, the inaugural ANCA-WR Grassroots Conference featured artists, scholars, intellectuals, professionals, and activists in a groundbreaking event which awed and inspired attendees that came to Los Angeles from around the country. With expectations high, Grassroots aims to set the bar even higher in 2013 with intellectually stimulating discussions during the day and fun social events at night. Those interested in attending are urged to make travel plans early.

As every year, the Annual Banquet will feature high profile guests and dignitaries. The event typically sells out.

Details forthcoming.

The Armenian National Committee of America-Western Region is the largest and most influential Armenian American grassroots advocacy organization in the Western United States. Working in coordination with a network of offices, chapters, and supporters throughout the Western United States and affiliated organizations around the country, the ANCA-WR advances the concerns of the Armenian American community on a broad range of issues.
