French-American Business Alliance (FABA)
Previously the French American Chamber of Commerce, FABA was created under the umbrella of the EACC. FABA's mission is dedicated to fostering and maintaining good economic, commercial and financial relationships between France and the United States.
FABA board members meet every other month and host events open to Greater Cincinnati’s international business community.
A French cocktail hour, which serves as a FABA business networking series. Beginning in 2016, each Apéritif will feature a brief “vignette” from a guest speaker, who will share his or her insights on the business they conduct between France and the United States/Greater Cincinnati. This year, Apéritif networking events will be held on January 21, March 17, May 19, July 21 and September 15.
This premiere event, held on the third Thursday in November, brings together a dynamic corporate network for both EACC members and the general public to enjoy. Beaujolais Nouveau traditionally celebrates the first wine of the grape harvest and has evolved into a worldwide opportunity to gather, drink and eat. Registration for the 2016 Beaujolais Nouveau celebration will open in October.
