The AGBU Central Office announces the retirement of Dr. Arshavir Gundjian as a Member of the AGBU Central Board of Directors. A resident of Montreal, Dr. Gundjian has served as a devoted Central Board member for over 35 years and was serving as vice president during the last years of his membership on the central administrative body of the world's largest Armenian nonprofit organization. The retirement of Dr. Gundjian is the result of the provision of the AGBU bylaws which mandates retirement of Central Board members upon reaching the age of 75. During the 86th General Assembly this past October in Buenos Aires, AGBU President Berge Setrakian paid tribute to Dr. Gundjian's lifelong service, commitment, and dedication to the global Armenian community and his service to AGBU in particular. He emphasized the prominent role played by Dr. Gundjian in Montreal's Armenian community, including the establishment and the organization of a number of its key Institutions, including the Diocese of the Armenian Church of Canada, the AGBU Alex Manoogian Day School in Montreal, the Abaka weekly newspaper, and the Tekeyan Cultural Association in Canada. Setrakian further added that he is confident that Dr. Gundjian will continue providing his services to AGBU, and he paid special tribute to his wife, Nadya, for her dedication and support over the years.
