We are so excited to bring the 2017 Convention to North Dakota. Plans are underway and we are searching for more volunteers to help with the planning and the days of the convention – May 4-7, 2017. If you can help in any way, please contact us! We need silent and live auction items and also donations of any amount.

It was a very fun convention and we hope to see you in Grand Forks!
