Hello Marcin,
I was wondering if you’d be so kind and post our conference announcement on your listserv. We are preparing for the annual meeting in Washington, D.C. in early January and would love to connect with Polonian circles in your area.
Please let me know if you have any question.
Serdecznie Pozdrawiam,
