Mission of the Paris American Club
The Paris American Club brings together citizens of France, America, and other nations who share a passion for France and an interest in fostering the centuries-old Franco-American friendship. Participants in our gatherings and events hail from business and diplomatic circles, the arts and education.
Our activities and purpose preserve a tradition begun in 1777 by Benjamin Franklin’s “Sunday Dinners” for Americans in Paris. Our predecessor, The France-America Society, was founded in 1912 “to make France known and loved in America, and America in France.”
Since 1940, the Paris American Club meets at varied locales to inform and entertain members and their guests with the aim of furthering fellowship and relations between our two nations – in all their social, commercial, artistic and intellectual pursuits.
