The 2015 Icelandic League of North America Convention in Minnesota this year will include a variety of programs and events. Plans are still underway so we may have updates and/or changes.
Keynote speaker: Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, former President of Iceland and the current UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador of Languages of the World. Madame Vigdís, who served as Iceland’s President between 1980 and 1996, was the first woman president democratically elected in the world.
Attending: Geir Haarde, Iceland's Ambassador to the United States and Sturla Sigurjónsson, Iceland’s Ambassador to Canada, and Ambassador Hjálmar W. Hannesson, Consul General of Iceland in Winnipeg.
The Icelandic National League of North America (INL of NA) was formed in 1918. Our founding convention was held on March 25, 1919 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Since then, we have promoted cultural activities among Icelandic-North American people.
