2016 President’s Letter

 

Dear BABC Members and Friends,

Happy New Year! As they say in my trade, I hope 2016 is off to a flying start!  I am honored to communicate with you early this calendar year, and introduce myself as the new BABC Chairman.  I have big shoes to fill as I take over from Howard Silverstone who recently concluded his second stint as President.  Join me in thanking Howard for his incredible dedication in serving the BABC not only as President on two separate occasions, but as an active Board Member involved in various Vice Presidency and Committee roles ensuring we continue to meet our mission and success in all that we do.  There is no other more dedicated individual than Howard.  His creativity, wit and good humor enabled us to achieve our goals and keep our members engaged.  Fortunately for us, Howard will continue to work with the BABC and serve as Programs & Events Chairman.

2016 is an exciting year for the BABC and the region. The new calendar year beckons various BABC initiatives including two days of volunteer service projects with the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.;  a meeting with David O’Sullivan, European Union Ambassador to the United States to discuss the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership – the world’s largest free trade agreement; the BABC’s 5th annual young professionals group panel discussion – Immigration & Integration, Who Does it Better, the EU or the US?; and the BABC’s 25th anniversary celebration taking place in the American Airlines hangar at Philadelphia International Airport, highlighting the region as a hub for international business exchange.

I hope you will take the time to participate in these activities and to help us spread the word about the BABC. Please visit our website and follow us on social media for constant updates and to register for upcoming programs.

Thank you,

Rhett Signature

 

Rhett D. Workman

President, British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia
