The Armenian Revolutionary Federation-Western US held its 40th Regional Convention on August 8-11 with more than 50 delegates representing the region’s Gomidehs–and 20 invited guests. Also participating were representatives of the ARF Central Committees of Eastern US–Canada and the ARF Bureau.
The regional convention reviewed internal organizational matters; needs and difficulties of the community; assistance available to Armenia–Artsakh and Javakh; and Hai Tahd activities–and accordingly passed a series of decisions. The convention also examined luring youth and university students to embrace Hai Tahd and community activities.
The regional convention elected a central committee to implement its decision in the coming two years. The newly elected members of the body are: Khosrov Asoian–Vahe Bozoian–Harout Donoyan–Armand Keosian–Avo Keshishian–Hovig Saliba–Anahid Stepanian–Hovan Tashjian–Hagop Tufenkjian
