The Association was represented by members of the Board: Monika Piątkowska, Jan Gasparski and Rafał Pieprzyk, as well as Sławomir Kamiński from the Steering Committee.
The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the current cooperation of the US Embassy in Poland and the Alumni Association, deepen mutual relations, including the organization of joint initiatives, and to develop new methods of action for the future – activities that will help promote exchanges and study visits funded by the United States government, support Polish participants in these exchanges in their further development and consolidate good relations between Polish and American nations.
The visit to the Embassy is part of the activities of the new Board, which is working on revitalizing the Association’s strategy and making its activities more attractive. The Board hopes to cause greater involvement of all Alumni, in particular members of our Association.
