President and “Hayastan” All-Armenian Fund Board of Trustees Chairman,
“It is impossible to imagine the Republic of Armenia and Artsakh
[i.e., Nagorno-Karabakh Republic] without “Hayastan” All-Armenian
Fund. It inspires us with joy and enthusiasm,” Sargsyan said.
He informed that he signed a decision, whereby commemorative medals
will be awarded to Board of Trustees members, chairpersons of the
Fund’s local chapters, and several members of the Executive Board.

Also, Serzh Sargsyan proposed to include President Jerry Manoukian
of the Armenian Medical International Committee into the Board of
Trustees, but this motion caused objection and concern by several
Diaspora Armenians in attendance.

Harutyunyan provided explanations, and stated that well-known and
active Diaspora Armenians are elected into the Fund’s Board of Trustees
and the right to chose belongs to the Board.
And as a result of voting, Dr. Manoukian was elected member of the
“Hayastan” All-Armenian Fund’s Board of Trustees.
