Dear Members & Friends,

This has been true  March Madness  at FACCNE! This month alone, the Chamber welcomed more than 450 guests at 6 successful events, including a joint panel discussion by the FWBN and HR Forum on the occasion of International Women’s Day 2019; a very insightful Annual Life Science Panorama that generated a full-house of 180 attendees at Ipsen; and a private event at the French Cultural Center with former French President Francois Hollande.

Looking ahead, for the first time in some years, FACCNE will be organizing a round table in Rhode Island on April 11 in the presence of the Consul General of France in New England, Arnaud Mentré. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the French economic presence in RI with testimonials of executives from Dassault Systèmes, Schneider Electric and SES America.

Last but not least, we are very excited to announce next week the names of the finalist companies for the 2019 FAB Awards chosen by our Jury of experts! This year, our signature event will be crossing the Charles River — the exciting  pitch competition and Gala Dinner  will take place on  Thursday, April 25 @ 6:30pm at The State Room, Boston , an urban venue offering unmatched views of the city and Boston Harbor. We’ll keep some surprises for the day of the event. Don’t wait to book your seats:  buy your ticket(s) now .


Regards,
The FACCNE Team
