About Us

Our Mission

We aim to promote an appreciation of French history and culture through the study of, and support for, the Château de Compiégne, France: one of the most famous and culturally important landmarks in France.

Through awareness and support of the historic and artistic treasures of the Château de Compiégne, AFCDC fosters the long-standing friendship and cultural interchanges between France and the United States.

Membre du Comité

The AFCDC board is an all-volunteer group of francophiles committed to promoting culturally-rich exchanges among like-minded people, through enjoyable and noteworthy events.  If you’d like to get involved, please contact our board.
