Annual Armenian-Canadian Student Convention

A very commendable initiative. Although Armen Karo Student Association has a specific political orientation and affiliation, that fact should not be a reason for other student associations and individual students not to participate in this yearly event.

Keghart.com encourages all students of Armenian origin in Canada to make an effort to attend this convention. Let inflexible ideological differences not hinder our young generation to explore each others ideas and willingness to contribute towards our cherished goals. Unity starts with harmonization, cooperation and building consensus around specific projects.

Armen Karo Student Association is proud to invite you to our third annual national student conference.
 
This year’s conference will be taking place from May 14-15, 2011, in Toronto. We have spent the past four months fine-tuning on the goals of this project and focusing on giving participants more of what they have asked to see.
We are expanding our list of invitees to include three ASAs from Quebec, seven from Ontario, and Armenian students from universities where ASAs do not exist, such as Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Halifax. The event programme has been expanded, too, and will be taking place over the course of two days instead of one.

In an effort to reflect the varied and multidisciplinary nature of our studies, recognised speakers have been invited to present on the following topics: political lobbying and student activism; the effects of Genocide denial; social issues within Armenia; Canadian foreign policy and human rights; new approaches to the Armenian Cause; and the Diaspora’s roles within the economies of Armenia and Artsakh.

Given that the conference will be taking place over two days, we will have the opportunity to enhance another of our goals: networking and building new relationships. Through a social event on Saturday night, attendees will be able to meet new individuals from other provinces and universities.

We will make sure to keep you posted as details become available!
