2023 Council Convention Information
Spirit Lake Resort and Casino
7889 Hwy 57 • St. Michael, ND
Join us May 5-6 near Devils Lake for our second annual Council Convention and Annual Recognition Banquet! Awarding the Silver Beaver Award and the District Award of Merit will be a part of our lunch program at the Council Convention. Also included is the College of Commissioner Science.
Northern Lights Council is considered one of the best councils in the nation and it’s because of you, the Scouters, Scouts, volunteers and family that make up our Scouting community. Gathering together to celebrate and recognize all you do for youth. We hope it will become on of your favorite events each year. This is the time of year we get to share our admiration and appreciation for you and get to say thanks, for being the support that keeps Scouting the amazing program it is.
This is one of the not-to-be-missed events of the year! No matter your position in Scouting is, there are breakouts for you! You will have the option to select your classes during registration. There will be some flexibility of you decide to take a different class at the event, but choosing your classes now will help us prepare each room at the Convention. The Commissioner classes are open for anyone to take! All of them are very helpful for any unit leader, but for commissioners, they count towards credits in the College of Commissioner Science. You may pick as few or as many (up to 5) classes as you wish, so if you are only coming for the luncheon, you do not have to select classes.
Scouters can book their hotel room at $100/night by calling (701) 766-4747 and mentioning the Scout block of rooms.
There is also a $25 Banquet-Only option for those who wish to only attend the recognition luncheon at 12:00 PM on Saturday.
