Most organizations tend to develop traditions and customs over time. Lakselaget will too. In fact, we already have. Let’s look at a few. Remember, traditions evolve, so more will surely develop.
11:00 – Noon: Members gather to exchange greetings, network, and meet new friends. Wine and drinks are available for purchase.
12:00: Members are seated and President begins the meeting.
12:15: Lunch is served.
12:45 – 1:30: Speaker presents with time for questions afterwards.
2:00: By 2 pm, the meeting is over and members may gather with friends in public areas of the country club.
All members will receive notification of Lakselaget luncheons through e-mail. Just download the reservation form and mail it to address listed along with payment. Individuals who do not have e-mail will receive notification through the US Postal Service.
Members are welcome to bring guests to the luncheons.
Although special circumstances may prevent you from attending luncheons, numerous absences may show a lack of interest and your membership may not be renewed.
Particularly urgent or special announcements may be made via email to all Lakselaget members at the president's discretion. This is also useful during the summer months when we do not meet.
Just one request
We ask that no announcement be of a religious or political nature. Thank you.
Promotional flyers and brochures
Feel free to bring brochures and flyers from your business or an event in which you are involved to our luncheons. You may put them on the table next to the registration table for your sister members to take. Please remove those that remain. Unclaimed materials will be thrown away. Again, flyers and brochures should not contain religious or political materials.
The membership roster is password-protected and available to members only. It will help us become better acquainted, assist in networking, and allow us to promote each other’s businesses. Please understand that the roster is not to be used by members or anyone else for promotional purposes. It is a private listing and access is not to be given to a non-member.
Each year we will have a fund drive to raise additional money for stipends and scholarships, and ask that you contribute to the best of your ability.
We would like to share Lakselaget with as many young people as possible who are age 18 or older. We may find students who cannot afford the student $15 dues — or, perhaps, they can’t afford the cost of the luncheons. If members are able, we’d like you to step forward and volunteer to occasionally underwrite these students. If you wish your gift to remain anonymous, we will honor that.
