FRAMCO's History

The establishment of FRAMCO dates back to 1998, when the organization was born at the historic Valencia Gardens on Kennedy Boulevard. The organization was founded by RoseMarie Magriby, who convened twelve at the table.

 

Via the Tampa-LeHavre Sister Cities Association, Magriby endeavored to create and develop a proper chamber. Her goal was to enable the local French community to gain professional recognition and status locally, while  simultaneously strengthening ties to French and European commerce.

 

Today is an exciting time to join or rejoin FRAMCO. We're creating new affiliations and focusing on our new business services and our Commerce Committee, which we're expanding in line with today's global economy. If you are considering a membership, please let us know how we can assist you.
