The association carries out its mission by organising an annual Norssi Day in close collaboration with the school, hosting other events and granting scholarships. The association also supports the school and its pupils and students in various projects. Each year, the association elects the Norssi of the year, a title awarded on Norssi Day.
All Norssi alumni can join the association by paying the membership fee or the higher sponsorship fee, both determined in the association's annual meeting. At the moment, regular membership is 30 euros and student membership is 15 euros. All members gain access to the school newspaper Veikko’s digital facsimile edition.
