 As it has done beginning in 2004, and was to have been done on April 24-25, 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic forced it to be cancelled. Our program in 2021 will occur on a modified basis on April 23 only. The "Future Events" page of our Association's website continues to display the typical  elements of our Association's 2020 program which had been cancelled because of Covid-19. Furthermore, because of the continuing pandemic, our 2021 program will be amended as follows: Our 18th Annual Tadeusz Kosciuszko Conference scheduled for April 23, 2021 will not be held in person at the Thayer Hotel of West Point, but rather, will be held remotely via ZOOM technology on the internet. All related details of our Conference will be posted to this website on April 1, 2021, and updated as conditions require. All of West Point's events of April 24, 2021 (e.g., the Cadet Review, Class Reunion Day and Retiree Recognition Day, and including the Kosciuszko Monument ceremony that began on July 4, 1828, and the Kosciuszko Memorial Mass in the Most Holy Trinity Cadet Chapel, and along with the Kosciuszko Luncheon in the Thayer Hotel), will not be held this year because of the continuing Covid-19 pandemic. The duty of the Superintendent of the United States Military Academy is to protect the Corps of Cadets, staff and guests, among those in the latter case, being our Association's members who participate in our Annual two-day Kosciuszko program.

God willing, our 19th Annual Tadeusz Conference will occur in person at West Point on April 22, 2022, along will the usual Kosciuszko and other Commemorations on April 23, 2022.   

The Association's sole mission is dedicated to illuminating and spreading the inspiring and enduring story of the life of Tadeusz Kosciuszko and his times, which more often than not have parallels in our 21st century world.
