Presidents of Poland and the Polish American Congress meet to discuss national elections and federal Visa Waiver program

On September 23, the President of Poland, Bronislaw Komorowski, and Polish
American Congress (PAC) President Frank J. Spula met in New York City to
discuss a wide-range of issues important to the Polish diaspora living in
the United States, including the need to dramatically improve the U.S. Visa
Waiver program.

The approximately hour-long private meeting, which took place following
President Komorowski’s address to the United Nations General Assembly,
allowed Komorowski and Spula to exchange views on upcoming national
elections in both Poland and the United States, as well as for Spula to
express his gratitude to the Polish leader for his country’s support for
Polonia overseas.

“The chance to get together amidst several international crises was itself a
sign of the unwavering support that the Polish government gives to Polonia
and to the Polish American Congress,” Spula noted.

“Both President Komorowski and the Polish Senate have been closely
monitoring Polonia’s situation and have been instrumental in supporting
where possible our vitality and organizational health.”

Spula invited Komorowski to attend upcoming events organized by the Polish
American Congress, including a conference scheduled for early 2012 in
Chicago as well as the PAC’s 70th anniversary gala celebration, to be held
in 2014.
