EACC is proud to be affiliated with the following organizations:

The American Club of Lyon is a volunteer-run social club, founded in 1987 to bring American expatriates together to share their common cultural background and to share American traditions with our members, their families, and friends in the Rhône-Alpes region. Members of the club include American citizens and their families as well as anyone who has lived for a significant period of time in the United States and who wishes to remain connected to American culture. While some club events are open only to ACL members and their guests, many other events are also open to non-members.
