Year in Review

6:30PM

Friends and new members are invited join the French-American Foundation as we welcome 2014 with a review of how events in 2013 have affected transatlantic relations and how the Foundation has worked to enrich the bonds between our two nations. Hear updates on the Foundation's current and future program and policy work as presented by dignitaries, program participants, and Foundation leadership. This is an opportunity to better understand the impact of our work and how your support as a member can help ensure that the Foundation remains relevant and meaningful.

The Honorable Bertrand Lortholary, Consul General of France in New York, will share his insights on the state of the French-American relationship as we enter a new year. President Charles Kolb will discuss how the Foundation is meeting its goal of serving as a forum for addressing key issues to both the United States and France. Board Member Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker; Young Leader Stephenie Handler, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher; and Sustainable Cities Study Tour participant Toni Griffin, Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture, The City College of New York, will also speak about their experiences with the Foundation's efforts to promote a strong, continuous dialogue between these two historical allies. 

Space is limited for this private event, and a reservation is required. For further information or to RSVP, please contact Megan Gleason at 212.829.8803 or [email protected] by Friday, January 3.
