2024 Convention, August 7 – 10, Chicago, IL

The Achievements of Post-Solidarity Emigrants

by Dr. Jarosław Gołembiowski, ACPC 1st Vice-President

The Chicago Chopin Society will be hosting the 76th Annual Convention of the American Council for Polish Culture. The Convention will be held at the Paderewski Symphony Orchestra and Academy of Music, 5400 North Lawler Avenue, Chicago IL 60630, from August 7 to 10, 2024. Our theme for this year’s Convention is The Achievements of Post-Solidarity Emigrants, which is intended to recognize and honor individuals who promoted Polish culture throughout their life. Additionally, we will be celebrating 20 years of The Chicago Chopin Society.

The Chicago Chopin Society began its journey in 2004 at Northeastern Illinois University Recital Hall with the First Annual Chopin Festival, featuring Adam Wodnicki playing a tribute concert of selected Fryderyk Chopin compositions. Twenty years later we still are helping emerging artists to be recognized and Polish culture to thrive.

As is customary, an attractive Convention Souvenir Book will be issued for the Chicago Convention. We invite all affiliates and supporting organizations to encourage their members as well as any local area businesses, clubs and associations to advertise in the program book. Their message will reach audiences in numerous states. The program book becomes a historical document cataloged and stored in national archives. Your gesture of supporting Polish culture will be known and preserved for future generations.
