President’s Letter: Spring 2017


Dear BABC Members and Friends,

As our fiscal year winds down I would like to remind you to put your membership dollars to work, and of the value of BABC programing. In the digital age we rarely have the opportunity to network face-to-face or to meet and hear from expert business leaders all together in one room.  The BABC offers approximately one event per month, affording members the opportunity to market their services and to meet like-minded international business executives.  We have had a superb year, and we will be ending on a high note with several exciting activities.

We are pleased to announce we are working on a new logo and several other important marketing initiatives, all of which reflects BABC’s drive to better serve its membership on US/UK trade and investment matters. Our annual membership directory – including a listing of the who’s who of global commerce in the region; a guide to valuable business services on both sides of the Atlantic; trade statistics; a review of our events; and advertising – will hit members’ desks mid-summer.

This month we are hosting our Sixth Annual Young Professionals Group panel discussion and networking event, and next month we are going to the British Consulate-General and the Department for International Trade Office in New York City for an update on Brexit and to learn about their services and sector campaigns. Pre-registration for this special program is required.  If you are interested in attending, please contact us directly.  Also in May, we are hosting International Soccer Night at Talen Energy Stadium in collaboration with several other chambers.  Lastly, at the end of May the BABC Board of Directors are inviting prospects to an exclusive membership development meeting and dinner.

Our job is to serve you and ensure you are fully engaged in BABC activities. As we plan for next year please contact us with programing ideas or initiatives you would like to be involved in.  We look forward to seeing you often during the next few months.



Rhett D. Workman

President, British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia
