Member meetings

At our monthly meetings, we organize important, inspiring lectures on a wide variety of topics at the Martino Restauran or interesting visits to companies or cultural institutions. Examples of speakers we have had lately: the politician Fatma Øtkem, fighter pilot and belly dancer Janne Holt, chief physician and transplant surgeon Øyvind Østraat. In 2015/16 we visited the Nest and the Women’s House in Aarhus. In 2019 we invited Emma Holten, a modern, outspoken feminist to speak and chair the Gender Equality event for over 100 high school students.

At our meetings we generally start by eating a light meal followed by coffee / tea and a light dessert.

Each year, the Board prepares an event calendar for the entire season. The club members are then organized in groups and each group is responsible for at least one member meeting. The activity plan is published on the website as soon as it is ready.
