La Vie en CLO

Bienvenue! Welcome to the CLO Paris Blog and Website.


Bienvenue and welcome to the Community Liaison Office (CLO) Paris unofficial blog. Here in the CLO, we want to help everyone posted to the Paris Tri-mission to feel at home in “The City of Lights” and to experience French life at its best.  From in-processing, to getting comfortable in your post and host country, to the eventual time to say “au revoir,” there are significant details to work out and we are here to assist you.   La Vie en CLO offers Life in Practical Hues; a place to find answers to questions, recommendations and advice.  The support and services we offer fall into eight areas and are designed to facilitate traversing the challenges that Mission members and their families encounter.

Please use the buttons in the menu on the right side of the blog to explore all our “Eight Areas of Responsibility” have to offer. Buttons for the most-frequently-asked-about items are located underneath our banner at the top of the blog.  We hope you find La Vie en CLO informative and useful.  We encourage questions, concerns, and suggestions, so please send us an e-mail for any information you do not find on this blog at You can give us a call at or stop by the office in Room A-13.  We’d love to see you!
