International Convention: Immersed In Dedication

Today is going to be a great day! It's the first day of Sons of Norway's 2014 Invernational Lodge Meeting and you can tell from the buzz in the air that the delegates are ready to go.

For those who don't know about Sons of Norway, the International Lodge Meeting is our highest level of governance that brings together insurance-owning members from throughout North America and Norway. During the meeting these delegates hear reports from a variety of sources, internal and external, they discuss matters of importance to the organization and then vote on resolutions and law changes that are brought before them.

On the surface it may sound a little stiff and old fashioned, but I personally find it to be fascinating. I think I'm fortunate to be able to spend two days listening to members voice their opinions and discuss issues that will affect the entirety of Sons of Norway. It's an amazing experience to spend so much time completely immersed in dedication and surrounded by passionate members.

If you ever want to experience the best of Sons of Norway, I wholeheartedly recommend you attend a future district or international convention!
