The Board of Trustees

The Diocesan Board of Trustees exercises supervision and proprietary control over all the real property or property rights in real estate used as a place of worship. It holds the title to real property and property rights in the name of the Diocese of the Armenian Church of America and retains possession of all deeds and other evidence of title to such property.

The Board of Trustees consists of no fewer than nine and no more than eleven members, elected from among the members in good standing of any church or parish in the Eastern Diocese. Members of the Board are elected by a majority vote of delegates at the Diocesan Assembly. Their election is subject to the approval and confirmation of His Holiness, the Catholicos of All Armenians.
