Welcome to the
GAMC
German-American Men's Club of Middle Franconia

No more e-mail newsletters

As we decided during our last membership meeting, the GAMC will no longer publish and mail a regular newsletter as in the past years. Our communication platform of the future will be the Internet.

Vision of the GAMC

The chaining between the United States of America and Germany has been grown in centuries. It withstood the conflict of the Second World War and has increased during the Cold War and the partnership in the NATO alliance. Globalization and shifting alliances, changing ruling parties and their leaders may threaten the friendship between both nations. So it has to be cultivated and strengthened by perpetual efforts.
The German-American Men’s Club of Middle Franconia wants to bring people of all nations together to promote and foster greater appreciation of both nations traditions, customs, history and culture. It wants to promote good friends and neighbours and create improved mutual understanding and confidence.  

Mission

The German-American Men’s Club of Middle Franconia was founded in 1970 by Germans, Americans and members of the area’s Military Communities and is one oft he most prestigious clubs in Franconia.
The Club has matured over the years, but the overall purposes have remained the same, the desire to bring together Germans, Americans, and English speaking people of other nations for educational, recreational, and social activities sponsored by the Club.
Over the years, the Club has visited museums, churches, palaces and castles, and the wine growing areas of this wonderful region of Northern Bavaria. The goal of the German-American Men’s Club is to continue in this tradition, increasing its membership, and continuing to add contributions to International understanding. English speaking men and women of all nations are invited to join. Club Members may sponsor applicants for membership or applicants may contact the club secretary directly if they are interested in joining.
