The AGBU Central Board of Directors and Council of Trustees, headed by President Berge Setrakian, representatives of chapters and affiliated bodies, members and friends had come to Aleppo from across the globe to review the past two years and plan the next century of work in light of new challenges facing diasporan Armenians and Armenia.
Starting October 1, President Berge Setrakian and members of the Central Board of Directors convened a series of consultative meetings in the Aleppo Sheraton Hotel with chapter chairpersons, representatives of executive committees, as well as the organization's representation in Armenia and those coordinating projects there.

It is the place from where many of our intellectuals, including those who repatriated to Armenia, as well as shining stars in the arts and other cultural realms in our new diasporan communities, were born," Setrakian explained.
In his opening remarks, AGBU President Berge Setrakian summarized the importance of this convention, and remarked on the organization's emphasis on Armenia as a crucial player in the Armenian diaspora.
...
Speaking about AGBU's future programs and orientation, Setrakian said, "Today, the focus of our activities and initiatives is our future generations; in particular, the formation of their national identity and the preservation of their profile. We must realistically admit that those belonging to the new generation are no longer living in the past; they are integrated with the social and cultural fabric of their environment and, for that very reason, they are subject to losing their identity and falling out of touch with the traditional activities of Armenian life, especially in communities that are far away from the homeland. We must be circumspect when it comes to the expectations and aspirations of our youth, and adapt our initiatives to them, through high-quality and effective educational and cultural measures."
At the recommendation of the Nominating Committee of the AGBU 85th General Assembly, President Berge Setrakian, Aris Atamian, Joseph Basralian, Nazareth Festekjian, Vahe Gabrache, Arda N. Haratunian, Sarkis Jebejian, Levon Nazarian and Sam Simonian were reelected as members of the Central Board of Directors, while Yervant Zorian, Silicon Valley chapter chairperson, was unanimously elected as a new member of the Central Board.

In his speech on November 3, the third day of the session, Mr. Setrakian reflected on the role of the Armenian Apostolic Church in the history of the Armenian people and the cooperation between the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin and the AGBU in the national-political life of our nation.
"The Armenian Apostolic Church, as a national church, has had an undeniable role in the history of our people. Today, in light of the new challenges facing the Diaspora, our national and spiritual life is in need of revival and, in this sense, we all need to act with new approaches and modern solutions."
Speaking about the relations and cooperation between the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin and AGBU, Mr. Setrakian said, "Traditionally our relations have been strong and enduring. Our cooperation has been based on the fact that the joint activities of the Mother See and AGBU have always been favorable for the nation in the Diaspora. In the course of history, guided by pan-Armenian interests, we've walked hand in hand with the Mother See with love unbiased and impartial. We are united in our endeavors and goals and certainly we are more powerful together."
Mr. Setrakian praised the activities of His Holiness Karekin II in the past decade. "In the past ten years, we have witnessed important achievements in reviving spirituality and spreading the faith. You've not only been a builder, a catholicos who built new churches in our motherland, but also a true spiritual leader, who consecrated 240 young clergymen for national-spiritual service. Due to Your active organizational skills, You are loved, respected and highly valued by everyone. I wish You good health and well-being, and I wish unwavering strength to the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin," said Mr. Setrakian.
