The Northern California Chapter hosts a variety of cultural & social events to share insider knowledge of a facet of French culture.  In addition to supporting a  restoration project, located in France or the United States, (see the recent list below), the chapter participates in the local community.  The N. CA  Chapter is honored to be a Cultural Sponsor at the San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show.

To introduce high school students to the importance of preserving culture for future generations, seven years ago a Student Essay Contest was created for tenth grade students at the Lycée International Franco-Américain   San Francisco.
