COMMITTEE: Previous Chairman and Committee Made Great Strides
Throughout Community

For the past three years, the AGBU Southern California District
Committee Chairman (SCDC), Dr. Simon Simonian, and dedicated members
of the Executive Committee made many significant strides within the
Greater Los Angeles community. Not only did they stimulate a renewed
interest and participation in AGBU among Armenians in the area, but
they also built upon existing good relations with other local

Dr. Simonian led the Committee in planning several noteworthy events
and activities that brought together thousands of participants,
promoted the Armenian culture and raised funds, totaling well over
$80,000 and directed toward many AGBU endeavors. SCDC plays a vital
role within the Armenian community in the greater Los Angeles
area. The Committee unifies the diverse AGBU groups that serve members
and supporters in the region, from the Sports division to local
Chapters and from the Young Professionals group to the Ladies’
Committee. It is exactly with this spirit of teamwork and solidarity
that the new leadership of SCDC will continue to strengthen and
promote the Armenian heritage.

Continuing these many achievements, Mr. Vahe Imasdounian now serves as
the Chairman of AGBU SCDC, joined by with several new and returning
Executive Committee members, who will lead Chapters in Glendale, Los
Angeles, Orange County, Pasadena, San Diego and San Fernando
Valley. In addition to these Chapters, SCDC has ambitious plans to
reach out to more Armenians in southern California through activities
organized by the Ladies Committee, the Ardavazt Theater Company, the
Sports Committee, the Scouts Division, the Young Professionals and the
Generation Next Mentorship Program.
