The NFCACF is proud to be an advocate for Croatian American interests in the nation’s capital
The organization does not speak on behalf of, or for, the Croatian government. It promotes the interests and truth about Croatian Americans, the Republic of Croatia, and the Croat community in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Our participation on Capitol Hill
involves a variety of events and
affairs which include:
Foreign policy-oriented educational roundtables, film screenings, and Capitol Hill receptions which featured the Republic of Croatia, Croatian Prime Ministers and Foreign Ministers in particular, and Croatian Catholic Bishops when they regularly visit the US.
Croatian wine tasting events in concert with the Congressional Wine Caucus have also been sponsored by the NFCACF and have highlighted many significant historical developments and have honored visiting emissaries from Croatia and South Eastern Europe.Show more

US Ambassadors to Croatia
and Croatian Desk Officers at
the US State Department
The NFCACF has a long history of working closely with and supporting US Ambassadors to the Republic of Croatia in many mutually beneficial ways. We have established a significantly productive working relationship with seven of the nine US Ambassadors dispatched to Zagreb since Croatia was declared a new nation-state in the early 1990s. Our organization has also collaborated with and supported American diplomats based in Washington at the U.S. State Department who have served as Croatian Desk Officers.Show more

Public Affairs NGOs,
Foreign Policy Think Tanks,
and related Advocacy Groups
The NFCACF has a long history of building beneficial relationships with various non-partisan groups and so-called ‘think tanks’ that examine US global leadership. This special and complex relationship building yields progressive engagement with our American allies and important NATO partners. Specific organizations in these regards have included the Wilson Center, the Atlantic Council, the US Institute for Peace, Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), the International Crisis Group (ICG), the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) – also known as the Helsinki Commission.
