We cordially invite you to join the Freundeskreis of AmerikaHaus NRW e.V. and to actively support our work. The Freundeskreis offers its members several exclusive events each year as well as priority access to all public events of AmerikaHaus NRW e.V.

Become a member and help shape German-American relations! Gain insight into American politics and culture, benefit from the knowledge of leading experts and observers, and meet people from both sides of the Atlantic who value the Western alliance and friendship among liberal democracies.

The Freundeskreis AmerikaHaus NRW e.V. emerged in 2011 from the tradition-steeped German-American Association Steuben-Schurz e.V. Düsseldorf.

We invite you to join us as a member of the Freundeskreis and to support the transatlantic partnership directly in this way. For people under 26 years of age, membership is free of charge. Students pay a reduced fee of 30 €, the regular membership fee is 100 € per year.
