In December 2014, the Lithuanian-American Community, Inc. appointed Dr Dalia Cidzikaitė, a senior researcher at Lituanica Department of the National Library of Lithuania, as its new representative in Lithuania.
Among other things, Dr Cidzikaitės’ activities will include representing LAC at various events, meeting with the LAC members visiting Lithuania, and communicating with the Lithuanian media. In the last days of December, the new LAC representative in Lithuania already attended two events. Together with the LAC Board treasurer, Juozas Kazlauskas, and the LAC Lithuanian International Student Services Committee member, Julius Medutis, Dr Cidzikaitė visited the Presidential Palace and delivered an invitation to the Lithuanian Song Festival to the President, which will take place in Chicago in July.
On December 30, Dr Cidzikaitė attended the ceremony for the Global Lithuanian Awards, where the most outstanding Lithuanian scientists, entrepreneurs, artists, and public figures living abroad were recognised by Global Lithuanian Leaders for their accomplishments, achievements, innovations, and for helping shape a positive image of Lithuania in the world.
