The Berkeley Club of France is run by a small but committed cohort of alumni, placing their professional expertise and diverse areas of interest at the service of the university. Since founding the club in 2008, the  leadership team has grown to include an increasing number of alumni volunteer interested in promoting Berkeley and serving fellow Cal Bears in France. It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that we continue to encourage interested alumni to join us in our activities and efforts.
