Our Mission

The Venezuelan American Association of the United States, Inc. (VAAUS) is a private, non-profit business organization founded in 1936 to promote investment and commerce between the United States and Venezuela. VAAUS sponsors programs held in New York City. At these meetings, members and their guests receive vital information about current Venezuelan economic and political events from top-level speakers such as private sector leaders, government ministers, and heads of state, and have the opportunity to engage in dialogue with them and with each other.
