Message of Ambassador Iulian Buga addressed to the Romanian community in the United State on the occasion of the Romanian Language Day

“On the occasion of the Romanian Language Day, I wish to congratulate all those who speak, write

and read Romanian. This celebration is another opportunity to promote the values ​that bind Romanian

speakers because through the language we preserve the culture, traditions and history.

The fact that Romanian language became an official language of the European Union is a matter of pride

to our identity. Romanian Language Day is a time to celebrate a symbol of our national identity. Over

time, the language has been connecting element of Romanian historical provinces, and now is a bridge

among all Romanians, regardless of where they live.”

Since only members may participate in electing the new Board of Directors, please consider becoming a member.

The current team of volunteers, some of them founding members, are available to those interested in learning more details. Additionally, please note that monthly board meetings are open to all AR-NE members, who are encouraged to attend.
