Who we are and what we do

 

MLI brings together the international community in and around Maisons-Laffitte.

The association welcomes internationally-minded people.

Our members come from all around the world and speak more than 20 different languages.

MLI thrives thanks to the social events organised by its members, such as family gatherings, sharing cultural traditions, parties, sports outings, coffee mornings, potlucks, cooking classes, book clubs, language conversation groups etc.  We invite our members to take new initiatives.

The association also provides an opportunity for professional networking, personal development through workshops and getting involved in the local community.
