ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — The Central Board of the Tekeyan Cultural Association (TCA) of the United States and Canada held one of its regular meetings at the center of the TCA Greater New York chapter on Saturday, August 17. The board reviewed budget and administrative issues, conditions in various TCA chapters and at its West Coast office in Altadena, California and relations with various TCA bodies in other countries, along with plans for various publications, including a forthcoming volume of articles of the recently deceased TCA leader Dr. Nubar Berberian.
The Central Board approved the progress of extensive renovations of the offices of its headquarters at the Baikar Building in Watertown and determined that the next TCA Representative Assembly will be held in Watertown on November 23-24, together with an inauguration of the newly renovated space.
Furthermore, the Central Board decided to hire as of January 1, 2020 an office will open on the West Coast region with an executive secretary, working out of the TCA office located at the Beshgeturian Center in Altadena, Calif.
Inasmuch as since the inception of the Vahan Tekeyan School in Beirut, Lebanon, the TCA of the US and Canada, and its predecessor bodies, like the Tekeyan School Auxiliary Committee, have continually supported and financed the school, the Central Board of the TCA of the US and Canada determined to continue its financial support to this educational institution.
