The conference originated in Canada in 2009 and has attracted delegates from all corners of North America as well as Europe and Australia. In 2012, the Quo Vadis conference was held in Chicago, the first time in the United States.
Through the leadership of CCSU graduate student Lisa Wisniewski, the 2013 conference will take place in New Britain, Connecticut in August. New Britain has a long history of Polish immigrant settlement as well as a strong cultivation of Polish culture and heritage.
The theme of Quo Vadis Connecticut is “Growing our Roots.” This highlights that the young professionals of the community are growing as individuals while recognizing that the common heritage is what initially brought this initiative together. It also demonstrates that dialogue, teamwork, and unity of the Polish Diaspora will create success for individuals as well as the community as a whole.
