Un mot from the President...
Bonne Année!

As a New Year begins, I would like to thank you for your personal involvement in the French-American Chamber of Commerce Dallas/Fort Worth and for your contribution to its growth. Please welcome Hannah Novak to the FACC Team! We are delighted to have her.
I also wish to thank the Board and Officers for their wisdom and leadership in approving changes made last summer resulting in a positive outcome for the Chamber.

Last Fall, we brought you Cyber Security at Atos, the Annual FACC InterCompany Soccer Tournament with over 200 attending; the re-branding of Beaujolais as “Taste of France…fall in love all over again” with superb graphics by Scott Boeckle Design, a downtown location at the FIG …a truly fun event with 800 guests inspired by everything French. In December, Longchamp NorthPark reached out to host a beautiful Sparkling Holiday Champagne Cocktail, and now we begin 2019 with new programs focusing on the strategic interests of our members in North Texas. 

We wish to thank Consul General Alexis Andres for toasting the New Year with FACC Members on January 30th, and for his focus to support French-American business interests in North Texas.

In 2019, the FACC Dallas/Fort Worth...
