WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Armenian Assembly of America (Assembly) welcomes recent university graduates Nicholas Testa and Samantha Testa, siblings from Moorestown, New Jersey, as the Assembly’s newest State Co-Chairs.
“Building on last year’s successful outreach and Advocacy Conference with the participation of State Chairs and activists from across the country, Nicholas and Samantha make great additions to our nationwide team of State Chairs,” Assembly Grassroots & Development Associate Mariam Khaloyan said. “With the 116th Congress underway, we are reaching out to Members of Congress about the importance of strengthening U.S.-Armenia relations, as well as prioritizing a Congressional Armenian Genocide Resolution.”
Nicholas Testa graduated from Villanova School of Business with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. Last year, he was a member of Villanova’s Armenian Society, where he participated in local meetings and events. Previously, he served as the Philanthropy Chairman of the Sigma Chi National Fraternity, for which he organized a variety of philanthropic events to raise over $13,500 for the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Nicholas works at Ernst & Young LLP as an associate in Transaction Advisory Services and Transaction Real Estate.
“I am very eager to get started as the Assembly’s New Jersey State Co-Chair and will do my best to help contribute to our cause and success in the future,” State Chair Nicholas Testa said.
Samantha Testa graduated Magna Cum Laude from Villanova University, with a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Accountancy and Finance. She currently works at Ernst & Young LLP in a senior position in Wealth and Asset Management within its Financial Services advisory. In 2014, she participated in AGBU’s New York Summer Internship Program.
“I am looking forward to this new and exciting year as part of the Armenian Assembly of America team, and will work hard with the local Armenian American community,” stated State Chair Samantha Testa.
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(c)(3) tax-exempt membership organization.
