ANCA-ER to host eight empowerment workshops for activists

WATERTOWN, Mass. The Armenian National Committee of America Eastern Region (ANCA-ER) is offering its activists a unique opportunity to participate in a series of virtual advocacy workshops. These sessions will be led by ANCA leaders including ANCA executive director Aram Hamparian; ANCA Government Affairs director Tereza Yerimyan; ANCA communications director Elizabeth Chouldjian; ANCA National Board members; ANCA Eastern Region Board members; local leaders from the ANC of Maine, ANC of Michigan and ANC of Pennsylvania; as well as special guest speakers from The Armenian Weekly.

“We’re excited to announce the series of workshops which will provide our network of ANCs and activists with the knowledge and updates that are vital for Hai Tahd,” said ANCA-ER Board chair Ani Tchaghlasian. “Advocacy for the Armenian Cause is in our blood, but we all need to be reminded on what to do and how to do it. Attendees can expect to get an inside look at the priorities of the ANCA and the impact our work has on legislation and much more,” she continued.
