Call for Presenters

The Great Northern Railway Historical Society will be holding its 2017 Convention in Sioux Falls, SD from September 16 to 20. We are looking for presenters for this convention. If you have information or knowledge to share with your fellow GN Members or if you know someone who would be a good presenter, we would like to hear from you.

Presentations are about 45 minutes in length with a 10 minute question and answer period. This is a volunteer presentation in the presenters are not compensated for their appearance; the presenter must also register for the GN Convention.

Any GN history or modeling topic is welcome; however, we would like to focus some presentations on the history of the Great Northern Railway in and around the western Minnesota area into Sioux Falls and the South Dakota lines.

Please submit, in writing or via e-mail, a title and brief description of the presentation you would propose to deliver. We would appreciate receiving this information by June 30, 2016. This information should be submitted to:

Mary McGlothlin, National Convention Officer
