Benefits of Membership

Why Join 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 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.
