ANC Burbank To Hold Vital Briefing On 2010 Census

ANC Burbank Logo (Small)BURBANK, Calif.,–Citing job opportunities and the amount of federal dollars local communities receive from an accurate census count, Armenian National Committee of Burbank Chairman Garen Yegparian called on the local Armenian-American community to attend a “Community Issues Briefing” about the 2010 United States Census.

The meeting is Saturday, December 12 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Ovrom Park and Community Center, 601 South San Fernando Boulevard in Burbank.

Attendees will learn about census-related job opportunities, as well as the importance of making sure every Armenian, who resides in the USA, is counted.

The U.S. Constitution calls for a count of all residents in America every 10 years. The results of that count or “census,” are used to determine how much federal money a city or community receives for numerous projects and programs.

In addition to a friendly, refreshment-filled environment, those in attending the Issues Briefing, will hear presentations from ANC Burbank Chairman Garen Yegparian, ANC-WR Community Relations Director Haig Hovespian, and Natalie Osgood of the Burbank Complete-Count Committee.

For more information, call: (818) 562-1918.

    Ensuring that the Armenian-American community is accurately counted in the upcoming census is an important task and the Burbank Chapter of the Armenian National Committee should be commended.  In 1987, just a couple of years after Armenian-Americans were designated as a “protected class” for Affirmative-Action hiring and contracting,  the City of Pasadena spent $100.000 to have a special census of Armenian-American residents that was conducted by Unger Serge Samoniantz.
