NEW YORK — The Tekeyan Cultural Association (TCA) is a pan-Armenian organization whose structures have operated in many diaspora communities since 1947 and in the Republic of Armenia since its independence in 1991. The TCA and its sister organizations held a consultative conclave on Saturday, November 18, at the TCA Center of Greater New York, and after long deliberations decided to form the Tekeyan Cultural Association World Council, which will coordinate the activities of different chapters and serve as their spokesman in pan-Armenian forums. To further this coordination, a convocation will be held in March 2018 in Yerevan.
This initiative was taken by the TCA Founders Committee in Lebanon and the Central Board of the TCA of the United States and Canada, and supported by the representatives of the majority of the Tekeyan chapters.
The formation of the World Council will offer new prospects to the entire organization to carry out its mission more effectively and to contribute meaningfully to the Armenian people in the homeland and in the diaspora.
