2021-2023 Grand Lodge Officers
Our biennial convention took place in July, 2021 at the Kitsap Conference Center on the beautiful Bremerton, Washington waterfront. It was hosted by our WA lodges Thea Foss #45, Nina Grieg #40, and Prillar Guri #30. We explored our culture and heritage through talks and hands-on workshops, and held our delegate business meetings. Walking tours and excursions in the Bremerton area gave us the opportunity to celebrate our sisterhood.
We are excited that our 2023 convention will be held in Reno, Nevada, hosted by local lodges Sonja Henie #29 - Reno NV, Queen Maud #42 - Carson City NV, and Elise Wærenskjold #48 - Roseville CA.
