Dear Friend of the Icelandic-American Chamber of Commerce

You are cordially invited to the annual meeting of the Icelandic-American Chamber of Commerce on Thursday January 19th, 2012 at 5:30 PM.  The meeting will be held at the Time Warner offices in New York City.   

Following the annual meeting we will celebrate a belated Þrettándinn* – the final day of Icelandic Christmas with a reading from our chairman and author of many novels Mr. Olafur Johann Olafsson, EVP at Time Warner, from his new novel Restoration.

We will as well hear from a U.S. investor (TBA) about his experience on investing in Iceland.

Please register as soon as possible with Bergþóra Laxdal at blax@mfa.is or call +1 646 282 9360.

If we get enough interest the Chamber is planning a dinner for its members after the annual meeting.  It is a self pay dinner and if you are interested in joining us please let Bergthora know.
