Saturday, March 28, 2015
10:30 A.M. - 2:30 P.M.
We urge you to save the date for this important meeting at an important time for Afghanistan. AACC invites its members and friends to attend this meeting.
The annual General Assembly meeting reviews past year activities, presents plans for the year ahead, elects Board members and provides an opportunity for AACC Members to meet with each other, AACC Sponsors, Board members and friends of AACC and Afghanistan from government agencies and international financial institutions as well as the private sector. We are in the process of confirming our Keynote speaker and special guests.
As you all know, this has been a defining year for the country with the pluses of a democratic transition of power and a Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) signed. President Ghani and CEO Abdullah have positioned themselves as vitally interested in economic growth with a strong impetus for reform in governance plus an intensified commitment of the Afghan security forces to fighting the insurgency. The donor nations have retained their commitment to the broader Afghanistan project.

The Afghan-American Chamber of Commerce (AACC) Memorializes the Life and Contributions of Mr. Haron Amin who Passed away on Saturday, February 14, 2015.
The Afghan-American Chamber of Commerce (AACC) wishes to recognize and memorialize the contributions of Mr. Haron Amin, an AACC Board Member and prominent Afghan-American who Passed Away on February 14, 2015 after a fight against cancer.
Mr. Amin was born in 1969 in Kabul, Afghanistan and lived most of his early years there. Soon after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, he and his family fled Afghanistan and eventually settled in the United States.
He returned back to his home country in 1988 to fight for Afghanistan’s liberation for two years under the legendary commander General Ahmad Shah Masoud, who in 1990 assigned Amin to represent the “Afghan and Resistance Interests” before the U.S. Congress and Administration, a task he pursued for more than a decade.
