About Us

The Lemko Association, founded 1929, is an independent, non-governmental educational and social organization. The Association is non-political, non-partisan, and non-profit.

The purpose of the Association is to unite immigrants from the Lemko region of the Carpathian Rus’ area of Central Europe, and their descendants wherever they may live, for the purpose of preserving their 1500-year-old history, culture, customs, and traditions.

The Lemko Association also works to advance Lemko culture in the twenty-first century.

The constitution and by-laws of the Lemko Association, and minutes of the 44th Lemko Association convention, held May 2010, are available online.
