Chamber News

Dear Members and Friends of the French American Chamber,

Our Chamber accomplished great things in 2016 and plans to achieve much more in 2017 and beyond. We want to increase the opportunities for the French-American community to get to know one another better by attending compelling events. We'd also like to expand our membership opportunities within the Carolinas and grow our vibrant community. The French presence in the Carolinas is increasingly more diversified, offers a vast array of know-how and resources that should be explored and fully utilized by our members. 
In 2016, we started to expand our activities into different regions of both North and South Carolina and to promote the opportunities in those regions as well. We want, we need and we will be increasingly present all over the Carolinas to promote the French "savoir-faire" and play an important role in the economic development of the region.

We thank all our members for their support and always encourage them to take an active role in achieving our mission ... and to help us grow our
