Request a Vesterheim Speaker

Vesterheim staff members can give presentations to cultural, community, and church groups on a variety of topics. Staff members will give presentations to groups visiting Decorah and to groups in their own towns (subject to schedule availability). Below is a partial list of prepared speeches. For additional topics, contact Anna Runestad, Events Coordinator, arunestad@vesterheim.org.

All groups are expected to give a donation to Vesterheim as an honorarium. If speakers travel outside of Decorah, hosting groups are required to pay round-trip mileage at the IRS rate (currently $.50/mile) and, for evening presentations, provide overnight accommodations (motel or private housing).
