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:

 The Digital Workplace
 Recent French and U.S. Tax Reforms
 Entrepreneurship 
 Customs & Import
 Compliance in U.S. Labor & Employment
 The Luxury Industry
 Immigration
 The Road Map to a Corporate Board Position 

The French-American Chamber of Commerce has hosted a variety of high-level and notable speakers in recent years, including:

 Mercedes Abramo, President & CEO, Cartier North America 
 Fabrice Sergent, Co-Founder & CEO, Bandsintown Group 
 Abigail Posner, Head of Strategic Planning, Agency Development, Google
 Patricia Barbizet, CEO, Artémis and now-CEO, Christie's
 Jean-Marc Bellaiche, then-Global Head of Luxury, Boston Consulting Group 
 Laurent Claquin, Head, Kering Americas
 Brant Cryder, President, Yves Saint Laurent America
 Rebecca Jarvis, Chief Business & Economics Correspondent, ABC News
 The Hon. François Delattre, French Ambassador to the United Nations 
 Joaquin Almunia, Vice-President, European Commission 
 João Vale de Almeida, European Union Ambassador to the United States

The FACC holds professional networking events, such as:

 Fall Networking Event
 FACC Tennis Tournament - BNP Paribas Cup
 Summer Social Networking Event
 European Chambers Event at the Central Park Boathouse
 Annual New Year Reception
 Networking Event at L'OCCITANE
 Networking Event at Palais des Thés

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. Yves Bigot, CEO of TV5MONDE, is the 2017 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 undertakes explorative missions, 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.
