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 economic, commercial and financial relationships between France and the United States.
FABA board members meet every other month and host networking events open to Greater Cincinnati’s international business community.
A French cocktail hour, which serves as a FABA business networking series. Each L'Apéritif event features a brief “Vignette” from a guest speaker, who shares his or her insights on the business they conduct between France and the United States/Greater Cincinnati. In 2017, L'Apéritif networking events will be held on January 19, March 16, May 18, July 20 and September 21.
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 2017 Beaujolais Nouveau celebration will open in October.
