DPS-DPAC Operational Procedures – Dec 2015 edit 2017


Framework for Dom Polski Centre (‘Polish’) user groups

download agreement here: Agreement DPAC Groups 2015


Dom Polski welcomes guest user groups who actively implement goals which are in accordance with DPS Rules (v.4, Nov 2011). All such groups must register with the DP Board by specifying their membership and activities to avoid standard fees for using DP premises.
User groups must accept the principal condition that any cultural activity must be matched by a ground work such as administration, cleaning and maintenance. Since there are no DP volunteers available to serve user groups in that way, each group has to pay a general wear and tear fee for each visit. The fee for groups of 20 or more is $50, or $2 per attendee for smaller gatherings. Those fees are only waived for user groups where a DP volunteer is their sponsoring member. All groups have free access to the new small kitchen d/s but may not use the large commercial kitchen d/s.
Dom Polski is not responsible for finances or tax affairs of any user groups

Group categories and other conditions:

  1. Special interest groups using DPC regularly (non Arts-Club groups)
    DPS permits use of designated areas at low cost to non-profit groups under conditions described in the Introduction. A separate, annual fee shall be charged for exclusive occupation of any designated areas (eg for equipment storage etc.)
    Commercial public events organized by such groups require using standard hall hire form and would attract standard hire fees with a 50% discount.
    Examples:  Seniors Club, Polish Theatre “Stary”, Tatry Folklore Ensemble, Polish Cultural Society presentations, Polish language classes, Debutantes Ball etc.
  2. Special interest groups of DPAC members using DPC regularly
    Dom Polski Arts-Club (DPAC) User Groups comprising at least three DPAC members (and no more than 50% of non-members/guests) are permitted to use designated areas for meetings at no cost other than the related professional cleaning as described in the Introduction.
    Names and activities of the group must be outlined in the signed, approved Annual Agreement for DPAC User Groups (ref. next page).
    DPAC members receive $1 discount in the DP bars and their groups shall receive endorsement in approved own grant applications.
    Example: Music Group “Ad Libitum” (Grupa ‘Bez Nazwy’)


-  ‘Polish’ denotes groups with the same aims as outlined in the DP Rules.
-  Members of a user group are not regarded current DP volunteers and are not covered by DP insurance
and do not receive transport reimbursement.
-  External groups and DP Groups ‘1’ and ‘2’ wishing to organize a public event outside the terms of the above
agreements with DP will receive the same 50% discount on hall hire as registered ‘Polish’ groups but they also have
to fill in the hall hire form and refund the cost of professional cleaning.
