LAS VEGAS—True to its grassroots heritage and commitment to community engagement, the ANCA will host its next Town Hall meeting on February 24th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Town Hall meeting will be held from 1:00pm to 2:00pm at the Saint Garabed Armenian Apostolic Church and Community Center located at 2054 East Desert Inn Road in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The community meeting will feature presentations by ANCA-Western Region Executive Director William Bairamian and External Affairs Deputy Tereza Yerimyan. The forum will offer an opportunity for community members to ask questions about the efforts of the ANCA, the nation’s largest and most effective Armenian American grassroots organization, to offer suggestions, and exchange views in an open atmosphere.

“We are excited to bring our energetic, assertive, and innovative brand of activism to Las Vegas,” remarked ANCA-Executive Director William Bairamian. “The best part about the ANCA Town Hall format is that it welcomes a two-way conversation with members of our community. The ANCA has much to share with our community about our work, but we also have much to learn from our friends and community partners. I look forward to spending time in Las Vegas with members of the fastest growing Armenian American community in the United States,” the ANCA-WR Executive Director added.

Nevada, popularly known as the Silver State, has a rapidly growing Armenian American community that has gained considerably political influence over the last several decades. Among the many friends of the Armenian Cause in Nevada are Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Congresswoman Dina Titus, who is a proud Greek-American.

“We welcome the opportunity to host an ANCA Town Hall meeting at our newly constructed Community Center,” remarked ANCA Las Vegas activist Adroushan Armenian. “The ANCA is a true grassroots organization. Our community is looking forward to learning more about the ANCA’s efforts around the nation to advance our common cause.”
