Why Become a Member?
The Danish Club of Houston provides a forum for Danes, Danish Americans, and others with Danish interests to share in the language, traditions, and customs of Denmark and to celebrate their Danish heritage. The Club initiates several events throughout the year in coordination with the Royal Danish Consulate, The Danish American Chamber of Commerce Southwest, and “Vikingeskolen” Danish language school. We also maintain contact with Danish organizations on a nation-wide basis, including the Danish Embassy, The Danish Immigrant Museum, and the Danish American newspapers “Den Danske Pioneer” and “Bien”, to name a few.
Membership to the Danish Club of Houston costs only $30 per year per family. As a member of the Danish Club of Houston you will be eligible to take advantage of a number of benefits. All members will receive the Club’s newsletter and invitations to all Club sponsored events. When possible, members will receive a discounted price to Club activities. Members will also be kept informed of the activities of other local Danish and Scandinavian organizations, including Vikingeskolen, the Danish American Chamber of Commerce Southwest, mother’s groups, and the Young Danes Network.
Members of the Club will have exclusive access to the “Member Area” on the Club’s website, in which they will find our membership list and other privileged information.
