What's going on here in Arizona, around the U.S., and back in Norway
As of January 1, 2021, our club is officially an independent local organization and no longer a chapter of the former Norwegians Worldwide (NWW) in Oslo. This is due to NWW's recent merger with the Norway-America Association (NORAM) and the resulting shift in mission and goals. While no longer affiliated, we support NORAM and their efforts at fostering trans-Atlantic educational opportunities. You can read about them and their work here.
On the local level, we are the same club you know and love! We see this as an opportunity to focus more efforts and funds on the community we have built right here in the Phoenix metro area and throughout Arizona. While we will no longer be affiliated with a parent organization, our club will continue on as an independent association with an even closer focus on serving the needs and interests of our local members. You can expect the same dedication to Norwegian cultural heritage with year-round events celebrating Norwegian holidays, traditional food and drink, Scandinavian music and dance, and more. As always, anyone is welcome to join and/or participate! People with Norwegian-American heritage, Norwegians living here in Arizona, and anyone with an interest in Norway and Scandinavia. We can't wait to see you soon!
