American Council For Polish Culture
The American Council for Polish Culture, Inc (ACPC) is a national non-profit, charitable, cultural and educational organization that serves as a network and body of national leadership among affiliated Polish-American cultural organizations throughout the United States. Founded in 1948 as the American Council of Polish Cultural Clubs, the Council currently represents the interests of some 25 affiliated organizations located across the United States from Los Angeles, California to Boston, Massachusetts. Its oldest affiliated organization, the Polish Arts Club of Chicago, was established in 1928.
In 1989 the ACPC established the American Center of Polish Culture which opened its doors in 1991 in Washington, D.C. The American Center of Polish Culture has, primarily, an educational function providing programs and exhibitions, but it also acts as a central point for the lobbying activities of the ACPC. The first director, taking office in 1991, was Dr. Kaya Mirecka-Ploss, who was then president of the ACPC.
