Board of Directors

The Alliance Française de Chicago is dependent upon its Board of Directors as its governing body.

This group of individuals guides and oversees the strategic and fiscal direction of the organization, as well as investing their time, expertise and critical financial support. We are deeply grateful for their leadership.
