Connect Fall 2011- Message from the President

Dear BABC Members,

The BABC of Greater Philadelphia has been hard at work during the summer months.  By now you should have received the 2011-2012 BABC Annual Membership Directory 20th Anniversary Edition; an electronic invitation to follow the BABC of Greater Philadelphia on LinkedIn; and the 2011 UK Trade & Investment for Growth publication.  If you have not already done so, please friend us on Facebook, connect with us on LinkedIn, and follow the BABC on our social media sites to stay abreast of the latest business trends and issues affecting trade and investment on both sides of the Atlantic, and to learn about upcoming BABC events and programs.

We have an exciting line-up of events in store for you during the next several months, including a business roundtable seminar about the digital economy on October 5, 2011, and our 20th anniversary/annual holiday luncheon on December 14, 2011.  Please save the dates.  We hope you and your colleagues will join us for these special programs.  Take a moment, and read through Connect for details about all recent and upcoming activity.  We have several new BABC members and some current colleagues who increased their membership levels to become more involved with our organization.
