President’s Letter: Winter 2017



Dear BABC Members and Friends,

Happy New Year! As we say in my trade, I hope 2017 is off to a flying start.  I am pleased to report the BABC ended both the old and started the new calendar years by giving back to the community.  Our Annual Holiday Luncheon raised funds for the Bicentennial Bell Park restoration, and on Martin Luther King Day our Young Professionals Group hosted a service project at Kingsessing Community Center in West Philadelphia.  Community connections are very important to us.  We are part of a vibrant, City culture, and enjoy working with people from all sectors to enhance our ties and make valuable contributions locally and abroad.

The BABC network works diligently to deliver worthwhile educational programs, networking events and information. Did you know the US and UK are each other’s largest investors?  Together we have approximately $1 trillion invested in each other’s economies.  Our Chapter is part of the biggest transatlantic business network of more than 22 organizations and more than 2,000 member companies based in major business centers throughout North America and the UK.  Members include the world’s largest multinationals as well as thousands of middle market and privately held entities across industry sectors.

BABC London is publishing a series of fact sheets for the UK’s top trading regions in the US. The Philadelphia file was the first one completed.  Please click here  to see the report. It is good to see that the region our chapter covers is one of the most vibrant US-UK trading areas in the country, underscoring the importance of our work in the BABC.

BABC members receive access to the who’s who of international business locally and internationally; discounted tickets to events; speaking opportunities; thought leadership pieces; opportunities to connect with UK government officials, and to develop business ties with leading professionals, among other benefits. I encourage you to read this newsletter for a recap of all recent past and upcoming activities.  If you are not a member and would like to learn more, please contact us.

Thank you and very best wishes for a prosperous 2017.
