Le Cercle Belge de Washington DC accueille dans la capitale américaine les expatriés belges francophones, originaires pour la plupart des Régions de Bruxelles-Capitale et de Wallonie, ainsi que les membres de leur famille et leurs amis. Les compatriotes néérlandophones et germanophones, les Américains intéressés par la Belgique et, de manière plus générale, les Francophones originaires d'autres pays y sont également les bienvenus. La cotisation annuelle est de $35 pour les familles, $25 pour les individus et $20 pour les étudiants.

Les membres de l'association et leurs invités se retrouvent régulièrement le premier lundi de chaque mois - sauf en janvier, juillet, août et septembre - pour un Rendez-Vous Francophone de 18h30 à 19h30 dans la mezzanine du Bistrot du Coin (1738 Connecticut Ave, NW, près du centre de Washington DC) Certains
ne font que passer pour y boire une choppe de bière. La plupart prolongent la soirée dans une ambiance conviviale et sympathique autours d'un traditionnel plat de Moules et Frites. C'est l'opportunité pour les Belges récemmment installés dans la capitale américaine d'établir des contacts utiles et de s'y faire de nouveaux amis. Durant l'année le Cercle Belge de Washington DC
organise également des activités socio-culturelles réservées à ses membres et il dissémine régulièrement --par e-mail et par l'intermédiaire d'un site internet-- des informations pratiques qui facilitent l'établissement des expatriés dans la capitale américaine et leur intégration dans la communauté internationale francophone de la région.

The VIW - Washington Flanders Club brings together a diverse group of people who have an interest in Flanders and Flemish culture. It is a "circle of friends" who get together to enjoy each other's company at a whole range of activities. It also aims at making Flanders better known to people who are not from the Flemish region. We therefore also welcome French and English speaking friends and we hope all interested enjoy being part of our organization.
We offer an exciting program such as a summer brunch, a champagne & dessert New Year celebration, nature walks, ice skating, a wine-tasting week-end, theatre, music and information evenings.
The club also has a monthly get-together "Tussen Pot & Pint" at the Brickskeller, 1523 22nd street NW  in Washington DC. (202.203-1885).  Every first Friday of the month (except January, July and August) at 7 pm we meet to have a beer and to catch up on things. You'll be amazed how fast your Dutch improves when you're tasting a smooth Belgian beer!
All this and more for a membership fee of $25 per person or $35 per family.
