Special events travel
NACC’s annual meeting of members is hosted each year by a local chapter. Recent meetings have included visits to San Francisco, Minneapolis, Chicago and Washingtonn, D.C. Many of our members look forward to these trips as excellent opportunities to develop national contacts with others in the Norwegian American business community.
NACC annual meeting participants also benefit from briefings by organizations under the ‘Team Norway’ umbrella: Embassy, Consulates, Norwegian Information Service, Innovation Norway/Trade and Tourist Board, Norwegian Industry Attachés, and others whose autumn meeting is coordinated with the NACC meeting. From time to time, individual chapters also host special travel events, which would typically be made available to all members.
