About Us

Where Europeans & Americans Connect to do Business

The European American Chamber of Commerce® provides its members with access to transatlantic business opportunities as well as timely and relevant information, resources and support on matters affecting business activities between Europe and the U.S.

The goal of the EACC’s New York Chapter is to stimulate business development, and to facilitate networking and relationships between European and American businesses & professional organizations.

EACCNY’s local audience in New York is comprised of major organizations in the financial services, legal area, media, professional services/ consulting industry, manufacturing, retail, real estate, international trade and other business sectors represented in the Tri-State area, who are eager to learn about business opportunities and the latest developments and in the trans-Atlantic economy.

Who We Are

The EACC New York is a private and independent 501(c)6 Non-Profit organization with affiliates in Paris, Lyon & Toulouse France, EACC Netherlands, Cincinnati, OH, the Carolinas, Miami, FL and Princeton, NJ and expansion plans for other US and EU cities.
The EACC is a dynamic network of transatlantic business executives with a combined membership of about 750 member companies in Europe and the US.

We look back on a long tradition that started 1926 with the formation of the Paris branch, initially as the French-American Chamber of Commerce and renamed to the European-American Chamber of Commerce in 2003.  The Cincinnati chapter was formed in 2007 as the first of its kind in the US Market with the New York chapter following suit in 2008, Princeton NJ in 2009, Lyon France in 2013, the Carolinas & Southwest France in 2016, the Netherlands in 2019 and Miami in February of 2020.  Since its inception the EACC® has built a network of major players in the transatlantic business community that reaches over 10,000 executives in the US and across Europe. We open doors for our members across our chapter network on both sides of the Atlantic.

Our Raison d’être:

“If we open a quarrel between past and present , then we shall find that we have lost the future” (Winston Churchill)

“Key decisions today, corporate and government , can only be based on educated judgment. Judgment must be based on good information and sentiment derived from dialogue with other respected decision-makers. This is precisely what the EACC is all about. Based on a common history , the same values and the same challenges , Europe and the US are in this together.” (our founder Maurice Marchand-Tonel)

Our Unique Model

The EACC-NY has developed a unique strategy, where the EACC-NY is an infrastructure that supports focused committees, hosted by our members. These committees group members with similar interests and are to organize various events that can range from think tanks to conferences. These committees allow the EACC-NY members to be involved and active in the organization and the EACC-NY to adapt to the needs of its members.
