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.
