Announcing the North Dakota Mensa 2021 Regional Gathering

ND HeRitaGe

Valley City, ND
August 20-22, 2021

Many of you may recognize this place. It's the President's House in Valley City. This was the site of nine consecutive RG's, from 2004 through 2012. We are pleased to announce that we are returning to Valley City for our 2021 RG.

We will have both the President's House and a nearby modern conference hotel as venues. Events will be scheduled at both venues, located just a few minutes apart. There will be something for everyone, including informative speakers and several outside activities including a tour of the Sheyenne River Valley Scenic Byway from Valley City to Fort Ransom.
