AGBU YPLA Plans to Expand

December 13, 2018


Over the course of the last few months, the AGBU Central and District offices have hosted numerous strategic planning meetings for the AGBU Young Professionals Los Angeles (YPLA) group to focus on growth, program diversity, and the calendar of events for the upcoming year. The last two meetings held on December 1st and December 10th focused on future event planning and curating events that serve the unique Los Angeles population.

The AGBU YPLA group is in many ways faced with the most unique network out of all YP groups around the world. Los Angeles is diverse and spread-out both geographically and culturally. The YPLA group plays a significant role in bridging the geographic and cultural gaps, by bringing all Armenian youth together to establishing strong relationships and a sense of community. Successful networking events are planned and executed throughout the year to not only allow each individual to expand their own professional network, but to also create an environment for making a positive difference in the local and global communities. With an ever-expanding Armenian community in Los Angeles, there’s much need for an expanded YPLA group. Elections will be held next week on December 19 and the newly elected committee will serve in the new year. The YPLA group is set to increase in numbers as a result of the elections.

The first AGBU Young Professionals (YP) group was founded and formed in 1995 in Los Angeles, CA. Since then, the YP network has expanded around the world to promote the Armenian identity and heritage for young Armenians between the ages of 22 to 40.
