The Chicago Romanian Community Summit

In February 2023 - at the first annual Chicago Romanian Community Summit - community leaders, members of nonprofit organizations, churches, businesses, academia and artistic groups came together in a series of panels to engage, collaborate, and strengthen our community spirit.

In the poignant words of Robert Dumitrescu, Deputy Consul General of Romania in Chicago and event panelist, “We strongly hope this is only a starting point of an advancement towards a better, more unified, and more comprehensive representation of our community.”
