About Us copy.006.jpeg

Overview

The Baltic American Chamber of Commerce (BACC) is a New York-based organization dedicated to the promotion, advancement and guidance of business relations between the United States and the Baltic States. We are laser-focused on helping our members’ businesses to build, grow and thrive on both sides of the Atlantic.


Our strength is built by that of our members.

How do we do it?

Network                

We help to connect with business executives, stakeholders, government leaders and other accomplished professionals on both sides of the Atlantic (US and Baltic States). These connections are vital for successful business.

Visibility

We provide an opportunity to build and enhance visibility of your brand and business to an extensive Baltic-American and international business community through our sources, business contacts, and social and exclusive events. Creditability is a key for the business expansion that we deliver to our members.

Education

We give access to thought leaders’ business insights and deliver valuable knowledge through our educational seminars, roundtables, panel-discussions and conferences in matters relevant to your business.

Advocacy

As the voice of business, we advocate on public policy and economic development issues at all levels of government - both in the United States and in the Baltic States - in support of our members’ industry sectors, local emergence, growth and legacy businesses.
