The 2017 AIWA Board of Directors' Election is Here!

 Over the years, AIWA has grown and adapted to meet the changing needs of Armenian Women everywhere. As we aspire to grow the AIWA network and increase our positive impact on our women's lives, we need you! Your participation in this year's election will ensure that our Board continues to anticipate and serve AIWA's evolving needs.

This week, we are mailing the 2017 election ballot to all our AIWA members. We are very excited to have ten outstanding candidates who have stepped up as nominees to serve AIWA for the six open seats. Please take a moment to read about each of these accomplished women within the ballot. You can also read about them right here.

As we move forward, I also want to recognize and thank two of our long-serving Board members who are stepping down this year. Houry Youssoufian has been AIWA's Treasurer and guided us through successful events and activities with a strong and steady force. Suzanne Moranian Bolles is our longest-serving Board President and has led with an open and encouraging style that has always allowed the best ideas to come to the forefront. I am delighted that Houry and Suzanne will continue to be active in AIWA and am deeply grateful to both for their service and leadership. 

When you receive your ballot, please take some time to review the ballot, vote for up to six candidates, and mail in your ballot. Thanks again to Suzanne and Houry, for your service to AIWA, and to the ten candidates for this year's Board of Directors election.
