History and Mission

Our goal is to support strong economic relations between France and the United States, and to promote the development of our member companies in the New York region.

We achieve our objectives by facilitating information sharing, networking and professional development. The FACC - NY disseminates information by way of its diverse programs and seminars held at top New York venues. 

Recently, the FACC has held panel discussions on such pertinent business issues as:

  • Non-profit fundraising

The FACC recently re-launched its Gala Evening. Taking place at Manhattan's Tribeca Rooftop, the Gala included the participation of 300 French and American executives, a rooftop cocktail hour, three-course dinner and dancing. Frédéric Rozé, EVP of the Americas zone CEO & President of L'Oréal USA will be 2018 Gala Guest of Honor.

The Gala benefits the 501(c)(3) FACC Foundation, which was formed in 2012 to help train and educate the next generation of transatlantic business leaders. 

By way of our International Career Development Programs (ICDP), the FACC enhances opportunities for young French and American professionals to acquire the skills and cultural savvy needed to excel in the global business marketplace.  By working with U.S. and French governmental agencies, the Chamber delivers personalized, professional service to our member firms as they train the next generation of transatlantic business leaders.

Lastly, the French-American Chamber of Commerce is directly involved in providing services to small and medium-sized French companies that wish to establish operations in the United States.  By way of its Trade Services, the Chamber coordinates Learning Expeditions for French SMEs, universities, chambers of commerce and other delegations, coaching and consulting.  Working actively with our network of French-American professionals, the FACC offers French clients access to bilingual, bi-cultural experts in a variety of fields including law, accounting, real estate, banking, public relations, advertising, recruiting and more.

Seminars, high-level speakers, networking opportunities, professional exchange and commercial services all contribute to the Chamber's mission of supporting strong economic relations between France and the U.S. , and promoting the development of our member companies.
