An American national level federation
In the United States each chapter is distinguished by geographic location, history, structure and the surrounding community. Functioning independently, the American alliances are unified by a common mission and by their membership in the Federation of Alliances Françaises, USA, Inc. (FAF), which acts as their spokesperson with the AFP and collaborates closely with the Délégation Générale, whose office is located in Washington, DC. More at www.afusa.org.
