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.

Though our events and programs, the FACC-Chicago creates opportunities for our members to network, connect, collaborate and learn from one another. The FACC also provides a range of trade services to our local members and to French companies seeking to develop their business in the Chicago region.

FACC-Chicago is one of nineteen 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 113 French Foreign Chambers of Commerce that spans 83 countries and represents over 30,000 members worldwide.

With more than 40 events each year, FACC-Chicago is the main professional forum and resource for French business leaders in Chicago and Milwaukee and for U.S. companies in our region doing business in and with France.

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