Fall 2023 President’s Letter

Dear BABCPHL Members and Friends,

In Sonnet 18, William Shakespeare wrote, “Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.” While I agree with the Bard and am always personally sad when summer ends, here at the BABCPHL, our fall busy season is in full swing! I hope you had an enjoyable summer, and you are ready to return to networking and business development. It was terrific to see many of you at our sold-out event in July. Please make sure you register for our September, October, and December programs. We expect full houses for our bourbon tasting and international art “back to school” night, our UK/US architecture and built-environment panel discussion, and our 2023 Signature Annual Holiday Lunch – Goal! Transatlantic Commerce & The Business Behind Sports.

We are honored to partner with local and UK leaders to offer this diverse range of programs. The themes of our events mirror exciting happenings in our region and in the UK. Join us to learn more and ensure you are current on the latest news, trends, and commercial opportunities.

The BABCPHL is your connector organization. Active engagement with the BABCPHL offers benefits you cannot attain elsewhere. Don’t miss out! I encourage you to read through this newsletter to meet our newest members, take a deeper dive into some important topics presented by regional Club Level Member, Penn Medicine, and Corporate Member the Mike McCann Team, and to learn more about our upcoming events.

I look forward to seeing you later this week at Freeman’s for our bourbon tasting, in October at Carpenters’ Hall, the oldest craft guild in America, and in December for the best holiday party of the season! An anonymous writer said of summer, “The tans will fade but the memories will last forever.” Please join us at our upcoming events and make even more memories!
