The Polish Cultural Institute incorporated under the laws of the State of Minnesota on October 19, 1979. The services of our incorporating lawyer, David Davenport, were provided as a gift by Michael Pehler. In addition to the Rev. Paul Breza, the original incorporators consisted of Alice Breza, Angie Peterson, Jo Caldwell, Marianne (Rice) Morrison, and Sheila and Dennis Daly.
As a Public Benefit Corporation, the Polish Cultural Institute is not owned by anyone, but we all have a stake in the organization’s future success and its ability to provide needed programs. The Board of Directors is our governing body. Individuals who sit on the board are responsible for overseeing the organization’s activities. The Board meets monthly to discuss and vote on the affairs of the organization and keeps minutes. It meets and proceeds under Roberts Rules of Order.
