About us



Since 1984, The Armenian Network of America, Inc. has been a professionally-based community organization that has provided Armenian American professionals the opportunity to interact.  With chapters operating in New York, Washington DC., and Los Angeles, each chapter operates independently, catering to the dynamics of the designated geographic area.

The Armenian Network incorporates Regional Executive Committees, responsible for the management of Network activities/functions for a designated geographic area and a National Board of Directors, which oversees the management of the corporation. The Regions are able to network through the common databases, via telephone, email, and services hosted on this website, as well as during educational and social events. Regional interaction occurs at the Annual Conference where business and professional topics are presented and through communication channels maintained by the National Board. Community individuals are recognized for their success in their professional endeavors. For further information about the organizational structure of the Armenian Network of America please refer to our Charter and By-Laws (PDF document, 800Kb)
