New York, NY- The Armenian National Committee of America, Eastern Region (ANCA-ER) this week welcomed its newest addition, Ani Hagopian, who will serve as the region’s Outreach Coordinator over the coming months to help increase awareness of the upcoming election cycle, oversee regional development, and assist with finalizing plans for the upcoming second annual ANCA ER banquet.

“We are proud to welcome Ani to our team,” commented Karine Birazian, ANCA Eastern Region Executive Director. “Ani is extremely talented and has already shown great dedication and motivation.”

Hagopian recently graduated with honors from Albion College, and holds a degree in Economics and Management with a minor in Communications. As part of the Carl A. Gerstacker Institute of Professional Management and the Prentiss M. Brown Honors Institute during her senior year, she wrote an honors thesis on the Armenian Genocide entitled The Forgotten Genocide: The History of the Armenian Genocide and the Diaspora’s Efforts for Recognition. She also had an opportunity in October 2007 to visit Washington, DC, and lobby with the ANCA on Capitol Hill where she met with several members of Congress from the Michigan delegation. She has also been a member of the Armenian Youth Federation (AYF) for over 12 years.

“I am very excited to have this opportunity to work for the ANCA. I look forward to visiting communities and communicating with activists throughout the region to promote the various objectives of the organization,” commented Hagopian.

The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) is the largest and most influential Armenian American grassroots political organization. Working in coordination with a network of offices, chapters, and supporters throughout the United States and affiliated organizations around the world, the ANCA actively advances the concerns of the Armenian American community on a broad range of issues.
