Our Mission

The mission of the European American Chamber of Commerce is to provide 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.

About Us

The European American Chamber of Commerce Carolinas (EACC-Carolinas) is an independent, membership organization dedicated to stimulating business and networking relations between Europe and the Carolinas region (North Carolina and South Carolina).

EACC – Carolinas provides educational offerings, business seminars and other events to promote relationship-building and information sharing among business, government and economic development/trade organizations.

EACC – Carolinas is business-led but works in partnership with government and non-profit entities. We work closely with our affiliates in Paris, Lyon & Toulouse, France, New York, NY, Cincinnati, OH, and Princeton, NJ.

Our history goes back to 1926 with the formation of the Paris branch, initially as the French-American Chamber of Commerce and restructured into 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 in 2008, Princeton NJ in 2009 and Toulouse & Greenville SC in 2016.

Together with its sister chapters EACC-Carolinas has built a highly dynamic trans-Atlantic network that reaches over 10,000 executives in the US and across Europe.  With over 800 members in Europe and the US, the EACC is a valuable resource for any size business.

The objective of the EACC is to stimulate business development and facilitate active business relationships between European and American companies & professional organizations.

Moreover, we introduce our members to relevant partners from either side of the Atlantic, connecting them with business opportunities and resources to help their expansion plans.
