The Chicago Chapter of AAGEF was launched in 2007 to support the alumni and students of the French Grandes Écoles in the Windy City and its outer suburbs.
Under this umbrella of a regional chapter of the AAGEF, our Grandes Écoles’ representatives have built very strong links amongst each other in order to organize significant local social events.
Our regional chapter benefits from the honorific and kind support of the Consul Général and collaborates actively with other local associations within the Comité des Associations Françaises et Francophones du Midwest (CAFF) in the organization of social events of a national dimension (such as Bastille Day).
New individual members, transfers and visitors are much welcome and can contact anyone of us:
