Armenian Assembly of America Announces New Headquarters

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Armenian Assembly of
America (Assembly) is pleased to announce the relocation of its headquarters.
The new Assembly office is located at 734 15th Street, NW, Suite 500,
Washington, D.C., 20005
The email address, telephone
(202) 393-3434, and fax number (202) 638-4904 remain the same.

The Assembly’s new headquarters is
located in The Walker Building, situated around the corner from the White
House. Adjacent to the old American Bar Association headquarters in downtown
Washington, D.C. and across the street from the U.S. Treasury buildings, the
Assembly office is a mere 350 yards from the White House.

The expanded Assembly
headquarters will continue to house the offices of the Armenian National
Institute (ANI), Armenian Genocide Museum of America (AGMA), Diocesan Legate of
the Armenian Church of America, and the Office of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic
in Washington, D.C.

In addition, the new location
will feature an expanded Armenian Genocide Library and Resource Center, which
originally opened to coincide with the 95th anniversary of the Armenian
Genocide with the addition of the Ambassador Henry Morgenthau Collection. The
new facility will provide a terminal for specialists to access the
Chadwyck-Healey microfiche collection reproducing 37,000 pages from the U.S.
National Archives, as well as other archival collections and research material.

In a major step toward
encouraging further research on the Armenian Genocide, Henry Morgenthau III
presided over the formal opening of the library in 2010 to mark its public use
for qualified researchers. Further announcements will follow as the research
center comes online.

Additionally, the Assembly’s
headquarters provides new meeting space for convening presentations and
seminars, and exhibit space which will display various collections of the
Assembly, ANI, and AGMA.

“The relocation of the
Assembly’s headquarters marks a new chapter in the Assembly’s over 40 year
presence in our nation’s capital,” stated Assembly Board Co-Chairmen Van
Krikorian and Anthony Barsamian. “Our new office, library, resource
center, research facility, exhibit and meeting space will advance our mission
as the leading non-partisan Armenian advocacy organization in America,”
they said.

The new Assembly headquarters is
designed to meet the growing needs of the Armenian American community generally
and the Armenian Assembly specifically. Over the last twelve months, the
Assembly has hired Western Region Director Mihran Toumajan in Los Angeles;
Public Affairs Associate Danielle Saroyan in Washington; Regional Director Arpi
Vartanian, Regional Analyst Alin Ozinian, Ani Arshamyan, Armen Simonyan, and
Nelli Tulumbajyan in Yerevan.

The Armenian Assembly of America
Western Region office is located at 450 North Brand Blvd., Suite 600, Glendale,
CA 91203. The Armenian Assembly of America Yerevan office is located at 37
Hanrapetutyan Street, 0010 Yerevan, Armenia.

Established in 1972, the Armenian
Assembly of America is the largest Washington-based nationwide organization
promoting public understanding and awareness of Armenian issues. The Assembly
is a 501©(3) tax-exempt membership organization.
