Fellesraad Annual Meeting

Representatives from each of 29 bygdelag meet yearly in Minneapolis on the first Saturday in May.  Dues remain constant at $5.00 per lag, which entitles two delegates from each lag to attend and participate in the May annual meeting.  Non-voting guests are also welcome.

The meeting is held at Mindekirken, the Norwegian Memorial Church, East Franklin at 10th Avenue South, Minneapolis.

Plan now to attend the Annual Meeting of Bygdelagenes Fellesraad. Breakout sessions will be held to provide pertinent information for Lag positions. It will be an exciting and productive one and a half day event! Rune Nedrud, Chairman of the Norsk Slektshistorisk Forening in Norway (Fellesraad's newest partner) will be presenting at the Genealogists session and also giving the Keynote address!
