Use SiO Associations for consulting and association development

SiO associations can assist associations that wishes to develop parts - or the organization as a whole - or face specific challenges.

SiO associations can for example assist you in getting an overview of your association's challenge and subsequently assisting in the making of a plan for further development. A consultancy service is a mutual agreement between SiO Associations and the association whereby the association agrees to regular meetings with SiO Associations.

When using SiO Associations as a consultant your association is able to develop or restructure in a controlled manner, with the support of professionals.

Put together a course combination

Boards of associations and other groups can request a course combination with short courses concerning relevant issues. Each course demands high contribution from participants, and the associations' culture is in focus. We recommend choosing 2-4 short courses, and that they are implemented on one afternoon/evening.

NB! These short courses are held in Norwegian.
