2022 District IV Convention

Fargo, ND Hosted by Kringen Lodge, June 16-18, at the Holiday Inn. Theme: “Call to Action”

After cancelling the 2020 convention, we look forward to an in-person gathering this summer, where we can freely visit with one another to renew acquaintances and discover new friends. We will also provide a virtual option for the business portion of the convention for delegates who are not able to participate in person.

Arrangements have been made to hold the convention at the Holiday Inn, 3803 13th Ave. S., Fargo, known for outstanding accommodations and quality service. A block of rooms is being held at the convention rate of $109 plus tax per night until May 16th. Please book reservations early by calling the Holiday Inn front desk, 701-282-2700, and mentioning “2022 Sons of Norway, District IV Convention.”

The Sons of Norway Kringen Lodge, 722 2nd Ave. N., in downtown Fargo will be the site for the opening Memorial Service on Thursday at 5:30 p.m., followed by the District IV President’s Reception and Dinner at 7:00 p.m. Registration, which includes meal tickets, will be Thursday 3:00 – 4:45 p.m. at the Holiday Inn and resume Friday morning. A bus will leave the Holiday Inn at 4:45 p.m. for the Kringen Lodge.

On Friday, June 17, all convention events will be held at the Holiday Inn, with the Grand Banquet in the evening. Following breakfast and check-out on Saturday morning at the Holiday Inn, the workshops and concluding ceremonies will be held at the Kringen Lodge. The convention will adjourn early Saturday afternoon.

The registration cost has been set at $240 for the in-person delegates and $175 for virtual delegates. Non-delegates are welcomed at a registration cost of $175 which includes all meals.
