Dear INSEAD alumni, 
It has been a great year for INSEAD with celebration of 60 Years of Excellence and continued success. INSEAD opens San Francisco Hub in February 2020!

In Norway, we have 548 alumni and a strong and active alumni community. And for 2020 we have fantastic events planned, with the French Embassy, and speakers like Rune Bjerke and Helen Pitcher OBE. Below you find more details about the plans for 2020, as well as a summary and annual report for 2019. 

We hope you will continue supporting our strong INSEAD alumni community in Norway by paying the 2020 membership. The alumni community is made up by you, and the more active and engaged all of us are - the stronger our INSEAD alumni community will be in the years to come! 

I want to thank all our volunteers for organising great events over the past year - our alumni board, our clubs and our IN-BOARD team. If you would like to join the team and contribute to strengthening the most relevant MBA alumni network in Norway, please reach out! 

On behalf of the alumni team I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Enjoy this holiday season with your families and friends. We hope to see you in 2020!
Susanne Hannestad
President, INSEAD Alumni Association Norway
