February 2022 Meeting

February 2022 Meeting

The February 5, 2022 meeting of Lakselaget will be moved to a virtual format, beginning at 12:00 PM. 

After an encouraging fall, when we were able to gather for lunch and fellowship, we have made the decision to move to a virtual meeting in February due to rising COVID numbers. There is no need to register for this event - just log into the meeting at 12:00 on February 5. I will send an update prior to the meeting with the Zoom information. 

As a reminder, our February speaker will be Amy Boxrud, Executive Director, Norwegian American Historical Association (NAHA): 

Amy is responsible for the daily operations of the association, in addition to leading the organization’s development, communications, and membership efforts. Prior to her work with NAHA, she gained 25 years of experience working in the fields of publishing, communications, and nonprofit management. Amy is a graduate of St. Olaf College, where she studied English and Norwegian. If her free time, she enjoys Nordic folk fiddling, volunteers on the board of a local nonprofit makerspace, and is pursuing a M.A. in public history.

For our February meeting, Amy will be speaking on the topic of "Thinking outside the (archival) box:  Discovering women's history with NAHA.

We are a vibrant group of professional women
who are interested in contemporary Norwegian
issues and all things Norwegian. 


The Lakselaget Scholarship and Opportunity
Fund was established to celebrate, encourage
and advance the organization's motto,
women who swim against the current. 


Lakselaget holds monthly luncheons where
members gather to network, share news, and
take part in a traditional Norwegian meal
of salmon, potatoes and cucumber salad.
