Norwegian Honorary Consulate.
In her practice, Ms. Meyer frequently advises companies
on matters related to commerce between the U.S. and
Scandinavia. She is a past president of the Chicago
Chapter of the Norwegian-American Chamber of Commerce

Honorary consuls are not career diplomats. They are
usually citizens of the host country, where they live,
work and pay taxes. They are designated by a foreign
government to look after the affairs of its citizens.
United States Citizens may vacation in Norway for up to
90 days without a visa.
