Welcome to the Chicago Romanian Community Summit, a landmark event where the heart and soul of the Romanian community in Chicago unite. At this prestigious gathering, we bring together leaders from various sectors - business, education, culture, and religion - to forge a stronger, more vibrant Romanian American community. The Summit is not just a meeting; it's a celebration of our shared heritage, a forum for addressing our community's unique challenges, and a launching pad for groundbreaking initiatives that honor our past while innovating for our future.

What is special about the 2024 edition?

The goals of the 2024 edition of the Chicago Romanian Community Summit are set to build on the foundation laid by the previous year’s achievements while expanding its scope and impact within and beyond the Romanian Community in Chicago. The focus areas for this edition are:

  • Expanding Partnership Networks: Aim to significantly increase the number of participating partners by engaging more groups, religious institutions, and organizations from other ethnic backgrounds, enhancing the Summit’s diversity and collaborative potential.
  • Exploring New Community Interests: To delve deeper into identifying topics that resonate with the community, facilitating discussions that uncover pressing issues, potential areas for development, and opportunities for cross-community collaboration.
  • Fostering Youth Involvement and Leadership: Prioritize the engagement of young members of the Romanian Community by introducing specific sessions or workshops aimed at youth empowerment, leadership development, and career guidance. Establish a youth advisory board to contribute ideas and perspectives to the Summit planning.

On behalf of the Summit Leadership Council and all the partner organizations involved, we look forward to seeing you at the Chicago Romanian Community Summit 2024 edition!

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.”
