Our Mission

About the French-American Chamber of Commerce-Chicago

Founded in 1978, the French-American Chamber of Commerce Chicago (FACC-Chicago) is an independent, non-profit, member-driven organization whose mission is to foster a thriving economic relationship between the United States and France and to welcome and support French businesses and entrepreneurs in the Chicago region.

For 40 years, we have been the main professional forum for the local French-American business community. We support local economic development by promoting our region as a destination for French businesses and facilitating cross-cultural communication, collaboration, and partnerships.

FACC-Chicago is one of 18 U.S. chapters of the French-American Chambers of Commerce, which represent more than 5,000 companies nationwide in all major industries.

FACC-Chicago is also a member of CCI France International, an international network of 130 French Foreign Chambers of Commerce that spans 95 countries and represents over 35,000 members worldwide.

FACC-Chicago is funded solely through membership dues, event revenue and business services.
