On Monday, March 30, 2015 during a meeting of the National Business Board of the Polish National Alliance, Mr. Steve Tokarski of Crown Point, Indiana, Region "G", was elected by secret ballot, as the new Business Director of the Polish National Alliance to fill the vacancy due to the sudden and unfortunate passing of Mr. Joseph Samreta on January 9, 2015.
Mr. Steve Tokarski has been a former Director for the Indiana/Michigan region, as a member of the Board of Directors, as Chairperson of the Rules and Regulations Committee, and as a member of the Education Committee, the Financial Control Committee, and the Membership Committee. He also served as Parliamentarian, First Vice-Chairperson, and Secretary for various conventions. Additionally, Steve has served as President of PNA Council Number 127 and of PNA Lodge Number 2365--Silver Bell Club. Mr. Tokarski also served two years as Publisher of the Polish Daily News in Chicago, a PNA subsidiary.
In addition to his efforts with the PNA, Steve has also been extremely active in the Polish American Congress (PAC), currently serving as the President for its Indiana division, a position he has maintained since 1977. Mr. Tokarski has also served as the National Director and the Parliamentarian for the Council of National Directors of the PAC and as Chairperson of the By-Laws and Grievance Committees. He has also served as Vice President of the PAC's charitable foundation since 1995.
Steve's community involvement does not end with his service to these two outstanding organizations. He is also an active member of several Purdue University alumni associations, as well as the Purdue President's Council, and he has held positions as Secretary-Treasurer and State Vice President of the National Advocates Society since 1984.
When not engaged within the community, Steve spends his spare time with his loving wife of 35 years, Marsha. Steve and Marsha, a stained glass artist and former science teacher, have two sons: David and Christopher. A 100% PNA family. Congratulations, Steve, on behalf of the officers and members of the Polish National Alliance!
