Candidates for PAC Board of Trustees


Candidate for the President


Małgorzata Cymbał

My name is Gosia Cymbal and I have been involved with the club for about 10 years. In the past I served as a board member, Vice President of the PAC, and I was responsible for Pacanów Polish School.

My goal as a President of Polish American Club is to bring all Polonia together and continue cultivation of traditions and customs of Poland.


Candidate for Vice-President

 Mike O’Shea

Although my last name doesn't suggest it, Poland is a huge part of my life.  My mother grew up in a Polish immigrant household and fortunately passed on many traditions to my siblings and me.  I studied Polish in college, so I can read and write fluently.  I am always looking for opportunities to improve my speaking!  I work with Gosia Cymbal and hope to have the opportunity to serve this Club with her too.


Candidate for Treasurer

 Grzegorz Łęcki

My background is in horticulture. I have always been involved in various organizations and students unions. Currently working for the Ohio State University as a program coordinator for student international exchanges. I have been helping PAC with books since 2013. For 2017 I hope to locate a candidate that would be willing to take over my responsibilities because I believe every democratic institution needs regular changes of its bureaucrats. I find volunteering for PAC fun, very rewarding and a fantastic opportunity to meet hard working and talented people!


Candidate for Secretary

 Iwona Testani

I am originally from Tarnów. I have lived in the States for thirty years, in Columbus for the last seventeen. I have been a member of the Club for around sixteen years. I have served on the Board in the past, as a trustee and an interim secretary.


Candidates for Trustees


Eliza Warzycha

I came to the United States in 1996 with my husband and three kids. I graduated from the University of Łódź with a degree in math but I devoted my life to soccer and being a mom and a wife. For the last 21 years my family has participated in the Polish-American club's life and now that my kids are on their own, I am ready to contribute more to the Club as a Trustee.


Bożena Stanek

I moved to Ohio in 2006. I live in Upper Arlington with my husband Krzysztof and two children, Mateusz (14) and Ala (10).  I was introduced to Polish community in Columbus from the very moment we moved here through Pacanów (Polish Language School for kids ), where my son and then daughter have attended.
