Membership Levels & Benefits

The French American Chamber of Commerce of the Pacific Northwest (FACC) is an effective professional networking organization for business professionals from large multinational companies, as well as small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurs. The FACC’s services are designed to support for bi-national, bi-cultural business people operating both in Europe and in the Pacific Northwest.

Our membership represents the vibrant French and international business community and American companies with whom they do business in the region. A wide range of industries is represented in the FACC membership, including aerospace, IT, biotechnol­ogy, legal, education, accounting, banking, consumer goods, business consulting and many more. 

Our events, online member directory and other membership benefits offer FACC members at every level the valuable opportunity to develop their operations while participating in the largest French-American business network with 20 regional chap­ters in the U.S. and 250 partners in the world. Visit our website at www.faccpnw.org.

The FACC Pacific Northwest organizes major annual events, including the French-American Business Awards Pacific Northwest (FABA PNW), a springtime gala dinner recognizing the region’s leaders and companies that have posi­tively and profoundly impacted trade and cultural exchange between France and the United States. In the fall the FACC organizes two of the West Coast’s largest Beaujolais Nouveau festivals, attended by as many as 500 at key venues in downtown Seattle and Portland. Members enjoy discounted registrations for those events and others.

The FACC Pacific Northwest is allied with a nonprofit organization, France Educa­tion Northwest, whose mission is to promote French education and culture. FEN holds many events throughout the year; FACC members enjoy discounted or complimen­tary admission as a benefit of their FACC membership. For those interested in tax-deductible charitable giving, note that FEN holds nonprofit 501(c) 3 status. Visit the FEN website at www.fenpnw.org.
